Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has had his say on Romelu Lukaku’s future at Manchester United, and has dropped a huge hint that he will be leaving Old Trafford this summer.
There has been lots of talk about Lukaku’s next destination in recent weeks, with The Sun citing reports about his likely transfer to Serie A giants Inter Milan.
Speculation comes after Lukaku endured a difficult season at United – for player and club – when he scored just 15 goals in 45 appearances. To make matters worse, the Red Devils finished sixth in the leaue and missed out on Champions League.
In an interview with HLN Sport, as seen in the two tweets below, Martinez has insisted that Lukaku “needs to leave Man United.”
He also suggests that Lukaku or his entourage has had talks with United and that they’re open to an exit before the new season begins.
Respected Belgian journalist Kristof Terruer claims United value Lukaku at £75m.
When the national manager gets involved. Roberto Martínez to @hlnsport:
“It’s clear that Romelu Lukaku needs to leave Man United. It would be good for both parties. It’s now up to Rom to find the right club.”
