Manchester United considering Romelu Lukaku as Joshua Zirkzee alternative

Manchester United are reportedly considering a shock move to re-sign Belgian international striker Romelu Lukaku this summer.

Romelu Lukaku has played for Manchester United in the past, and he had an underwhelming spell with them. According to Calciomercato, the Red Devils are lining up a surprise move for the Belgian attacker, who scored 21 goals for AS Roma last season.

Manchester United want to improve their attacking unit this summer, and they have identified Joshua Zirkzee as a target. If they fail to sign the Dutch attacker, they could look to bring their former striker back to the club. It will be interesting to see if Lukaku is willing to return to Old Trafford.

The veteran striker was on loan at AS Roma last season, and he was quite impressive for them. He will look to secure a permanent exit from Chelsea this summer, as he does not have a future at the London club. Lukaku needs to leave Chelsea to play regularly, and a return to Old Trafford could be an interesting opportunity.

Lukaku might prefer Serie A switch

The Belgian has proven himself at multiple clubs, and there is no doubt that he is a quality player. However, a return to the Premier League might not be a top priority for Lukaku right now. He is enjoying his football in Italy, and it will not be a surprise if he decides to join an Italian club this summer.

Meanwhile, Manchester United must look to sign a reliable goalscorer before the new season begins. Zirkzee would be a quality acquisition for them. The Bologna striker scored 12 goals across all competitions last season, and he is likely to improve with coaching and experience. A move to the Premier League will be an exciting opportunity for him and he will look to prove himself in the English top flight.

He has the physical and technical attributes to do well in English football. The Dutchman is more than just a goalscorer, and he will add creativity to the Manchester United attack as well. He could form a solid partnership with Rasmus Hojlund next season.
