Manchester United are ready to offer RSC Anderlecht €20 million for teenage sensation Romelu Lukaku, according to Belgian sources.
The 17-year-old, dubbed ‘The New Didier Drogba” burst onto the scene last season with 18 goals and six assists. And he is well on the way to beating those figures this season, scoring 14 goals and setting up three, and has a league efficiency ratio of a goal and assist every 111.1 minutes.
He is one of the most in-demand players in Europe, and Anderlecht have said as many as 15 clubs are after him.
Lukaku is strong, fast and deadly in front of goal. He moves well in the box and is always in the right place at the right time. He shoots well with both feet, although he prefers his left side.
He is a good passer of the ball, too, adept at creating scoring opportunities for his teammates.
Lukaku does need to work on his technique in small spaces, but he is sure to progress into a truly world class player.
