Manchester United are being linked with just about everyone at the minute, but the club should perhaps focus on keeping their star names happy at the club.
Romelu Lukaku has netted four goals in 11 games for Man Utd this season, although he’s been far more prolific over in the international arena, having fired home five goals in just three games for Belgium, including a brace in the 2-1 victory over Switzerland last Friday.
Belgium face a tasty duel against rivals Holland on Tuesday, before Lukaku jets back to Manchester ahead of the club’s crunch clash away to Chelsea on Saturday.
It’s a pivotal stage of the season for the Red Devils who then face a Champions League fixture against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus at Old Trafford a week Tuesday.
In an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport Lukaku has revealed his fondness for the Italian giants and their manager Max Allegri, leading to rumours that he could well join his brother Jordan (Lazio) in Italy in the future.
“Why not? I hope it happens," Lukaku told the publication when asked whether he would be interested in a move to Serie A.
“Juve have a great project in place and they just keep going. Every year they try to get stronger.
“Without doubt, Juve are one of the two-three best teams in Europe.
"They’ve got a great coach on the bench and extraordinary players in every area of the team.”
Lukaku will be gunning to transfer his international form back to club level as he bids to make his mark against Juventus.
United will be hoping to maintain their unbeaten start to life in Group H, although Mourinho’s men would have to do something that no other club has done so far this season: prevent Juventus from winning.
The Old Lady have remarkably won each of their opening 10 matches to the campaign, including both games in Europe, while they’ve conceded only one goal in their last six outings.
