Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku thinks Manchester United are heading in the “right direction” this season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Belgium striker joined United from Chelsea for £75million in July 2017, scoring 42 goals over his two seasons at the club before moving to Inter Milan last summer.

Lukaku has been in superb form for Antonio Conte’s side, scoring 23 goals to help the club launch a challenge for the Serie A title.

Since Lukaku left Man Utd have struggled to replace his goals up front with Marcus Rashford currently out injured but the 26-year-old thinks “they will get there”.

“They going the right direction,” Lukaku said as part of an Instagram Q&A session.

“It’s a process, but they will get there.”

Lukaku was heavily criticised at certain points in his time at Man Utd despite his impressive goalscoring record.

“It was always, ‘Yes, but …’ right from the start,” Lukaku added in the same interview. “I scored against Real Madrid in the European Super Cup but missed a chance. It was: ‘But he missed that one.’

“I scored against West Ham in my first Premier League game: ‘Yes, but…’ From then on, I started to wonder how it was going to go.”
