The new Manchester United recruit aims to emulate the achievement of former Red Devil legend Cristiano Ronaldo.
Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed he wants to emulate Cristiano Ronaldo’s career at Manchester United with goals and trophies. With 25 Premier League goals under his belt last season and 53 in total since leaving Chelsea in 2014, Lukaku arrived United from Everton in a mega money deal of a £75million move.
Lukaku, 24, has already shown glimpses of what to expect from him by the United faithful netting two goals in United’s pre-season tour of the United States. However, Lukaku has said there is still room for improvement as he aims to reach level of four -time Ballond’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored 118 goals and claimed three Premier League titles and winning the Champions League during his six-year spell at United.

Lukaku said: “I’m far from that level, but it’s the level I want to aim for. I’m 24, I can’t say I’m the complete package. I can’t say I’m in my prime.
There is a lot of work to be done and I’m delighted that there is still work to be done. That means I can become even better than I am.
That’s the state of mind I have – I always want to be better. There is always room to improve. I just want to become the best player I can be.
I’ll never say it’s good enough. It’s a pressure I put on myself. When you play for United you have to perform every week.
That is something that I wanted to feel. I wanted to feel that pressure, I wanted to feel that hunger – to be here now. I’m grateful to be part of the biggest club in the world, but there is a lot of work to be done, and I know that I need to work much harder than I have until now.”
