Manchester United legend weighs in on how Romelu Lukaku will fit in Jose Mourinho's setup

By

Manchester United legend Phil Neville says Romelu Lukaku can be just what the Red Devils need to fight for the English Premier League.

The 40-year-old was full of praise for the Belgium international as he described his record from last season as "sensational."

Recent reports have claimed that the 24-year-old will become Jose Mourinho's second summer signing.

"I think you've seen an improvement, I think there were of couple of criticisms - can he play in big games? Can he score in the big games? I think he half dispelled that last season," Neville told BBC Radio Five Live.

"He scored in a couple of the big games and I think he is improving all the time.

"I think he's a different type of striker from what United have had for a long time, someone that can probably run in behind, can be a little bit of a battering ram, that United can play on the counter-attack.

"I think with Zlatan last season United couldn't play on the counter-attack because obviously his age and the fact his legs are slowing down a little bit. Now you've got someone with genuine, genuine speed that United can play on the counter-attack.

"His record actually is sensational. I mean 25 goals last year, 18 the year before. If you go back to his West Brom days when he was on loan there from Chelsea [he scored] 17 Premier League goals. If he gets anything like 17 to 20 this year United will be successful."
