Romelu Lukaku’s agent Federico Pastorello has described the striker’s future at Manchester United as “very open”.

Marcus Rashford has been preferred in the starting line-up under new United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in recent months after Lukaku was almost guaranteed a start under Jose Mourinho.

The Belgium international has bagged 42 goals in 90 appearances for the Red Devils since they bought him for £75million from Everton in the summer of 2017.

And Pastorello admits that Lukaku has bold ambitions to conquer “all the top championships”.

“At the moment he is very focused on finishing the season,” Pastorello told Sky Sports. “The competition for third and fourth place in England is very tight so let’s see what will happen in the future at the end the season.

“It’s his second season here and he will still have three years on his contract until the end. Let’s see. He’s someone who loves to know a different culture, a different football.

“He sees a way to have a career playing in different countries because he would like to win some trophies and prove himself and say to his children: ‘I won there and I won there and I won there’ and ‘I was a very good player in all the top championships’.

“So let’s see, the future is really very open but, at the moment, we don’t discuss about that because really the season is in a big moment.”

Pastorello continued: “He likes Italy. When he was a child he followed a lot the Italian league. Everybody agrees today the Premier League is the best but years ago Italy was the best and they were the dreams for the younger footballer players.

“Teams like Real Madrid and Barcelona of course attract any champion so he sees also in La Liga one day. Bundesliga for sure is a very good championship.”
