The Belgian has been impressive so far this season

Romelu Lukaku joined Manchester United from Everton last summer for a reported fee of £75 million plus £15 million in add-ons, signing a 5 year contract with an option to extend it by a year.

The Belgian developed himself as one of the best strikers in the Premier League with the Toffees and was even linked with a return to his former club Chelsea before deciding to move to Old Trafford.

The 25 year old was very impressive for the Red Devils in his debut season, scoring 26 goals in all competitions. He helped them to finish second in the league behind Manchester City, their highest ever finish since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

The Striker was selected in the Belgium World Cup squad this summer and scored 4 goals in the tournament as his nation reached the semi-finals.

The Belgium International has started this season strongly, scoring 4 goals in 5 appearances. He recently became the latest player over the 100 Premier League goals mark and his last strike, against Watford in the 2-1 saw him overtake Didier Drogba’s 104 in the English top flight.

Lukaku has revealed that he has been in regular contact with his childhood hero Drogba and claimed that he has been helping him with his progression.

“Well he’s [Drogba] been a part of my process from day one until now, we talk almost every day,” he told the Premier League website.
