His contract doesn’t run out before summer 2019, but it’s a common secret that Romelu Lukaku feels ready and eager to move away from Goodison Park, in search of Champions League football.
Manchester United are, according to various reports, among those interested in signing the Belgium international, but his coach at Everton, Ronald Koeman, doubts a move to United would give Lukaku that Champions League experience he looks so forward to having.
I cannot see Manchester United finishing in the top four. Zlatan’s injury looks bad and when I look at the amount of matches they are having to play this season I can see them missing the top four
the Dutch manager told reporters, before criticizing United’s overall performance this season;
I have not been impressed by the way they play. They are struggling to decide matches. With Everton we drew twice against United this season and both times there was more in it for us
Koeman said, using United’s latest struggle against Anderlecht as an example;
The Europa League is a different calibre than the Champions League. The fact that Man United were struggling to beat a team like Anderlecht proves what kind of season the club is having
was Koeman’s comment. Last, he cleared out that if Everton, the board, decide to keep Lukaku, they can do so, because the club
now have the resources to keep every player, including Lukaku, who has a contract for another two years.
