The Belgium international named Cristiano Ronaldo, Paolo Dybala and Douglas Costa as the players he enjoys watching the most
Romelu Lukaku ‘hopes’ to play in Serie A in the future after heaping praise on reigning champions Juventus.
The Manchester United forward is entering his second season at Old Trafford after completing a sensational £75million transfer from Everton last summer.
Although he has scored 31 goals in all competitions since making his move, fans remain sceptical about the Belgium international.
But his recent comments to Italian journalists will surely leave fans concerned after admitting he hopes to move to Italy at some point during his career.
“Juve have a great project in place and they just keep going. Every year they try to get stronger,” Lukaku told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“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.
“Cristiano Ronaldo stands out, but watch out for the others too. Paulo Dybala is already impressive and getting stronger, while I love Douglas Costa. He’s an exceptional signing and his career shows he always makes the difference.
“It’s a tough group, but obviously Manchester United want to finish on top.”
Lukaku’s brother Jordan plays for Lazio as a wing-back, also featuring for his country alongside his sibling in the past.
And when asked if the two could play in Serie A together one day, the 25-year-old was not exactly diplomatic in his answer.
“Why not? I hope it happens.”
