Former Manchester United player encourages Ten Hag to bring Lukaku back
Manchester United icon Dwight Yorke recently sat down with ‘OLBG’ for an interview, shedding light on the attacking situation at his beloved club. The 51-year-old legend expressed his belief that the Red Devils should bring back Romelu Lukaku as a backup option.
In recent years, Lukaku has experienced turbulent times at Inter and Chelsea, and it seems likely that he will depart Stamford Bridge this season. While there have been discussions between the Serie A side and the Blues regarding a permanent transfer for Lukaku, negotiations have not progressed as expected. Consequently, Manchester United are actively searching for a new destination for the Belgian striker, especially as Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that he does not feature in his plans.
Dwight Yorke, who spent four seasons at Manchester United, passionately urged Erik ten Hag and the club’s board to pursue the re-signing of Romelu Lukaku in his interview with ‘OLBG’.
“Romelu Lukaku is unquestionably still capable of playing for a top-six club. In my opinion, both Manchester United and Tottenham should consider bringing Lukaku in on a short-term loan deal and agree to contribute to his wages,” remarked Yorke.
“People often underestimate Lukaku’s remarkable goal-scoring record and fail to give him the credit he deserves. If you have a motivated Lukaku who is eager to play for your team, he can be a game-changer and a handful for any opponent in the world,” Yorke continued.
“While Manchester United have made significant investments in Rasmus Hojlund, if they truly want to compete with the best, Lukaku is the type of player who can deliver 15 to 20 goals in a season. Such a prolific striker is invaluable and rare in today’s game,” Yorke concluded.
