Romelu Lukaku's dad believes Everton striker should join Manchester United or Bayern Munich

Barkley, Lukaku, Barry

The Belgian striker has been in fantastic form this season.

Everton will be looking to improve their team this summer but their main concern might end up being how to keep their best players.

One such player will be star striker Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian has become a top striker this season – scoring 25 goals this term.

That has seen him linked with a heap of top clubs and now his dad has had his say on the matter.

Roger Lukaku, himself a former professional footballer with the likes of Genclerbirligi and KV Mechelen, has been speaking to Het Laatste Nieuws in Belgium this week and had this to say regarding Lukaku’s future:

"Romelu certainly has an opinion on the issue and he also has an agent. I see that there are relevant teams (interested).

“For me, the two clubs are really made for him: Bayern Munich and Manchester United.

“United is a construction team that does not have a ‘real striker’.

“Munich is a machine where he might fit ... provided that Robert Lewandowski leaves for PSG or elsewhere."

Everton will certainly have a challenge on their hands keeping hold of Lukaku – especially if these two teams come in for the player.

Manchester United and Bayern Munich are two huge clubs and the latter will be able to offer him Champions League football for sure, whilst United might make it into the top four yet.

Everton however are well off the pace and perhaps only an FA Cup win will convince Lukaku to stick around.

But if Bayern or United come knocking that might not be enough.
