Manchester United star Romelu Lukaku says he’s open to a move to Serie A in the future, reports Gazzetta dello Sport.

The striker’s current contract with the Old Trafford club, who he has scored four times in 11 matches this season, runs until 2022 – with an option of a further year.

However, when asked if he would consider a move to Italy, the 25-year-old told reporters: “Why not? I hope it happens.

The powerful forward then spoke of his admiration for champions Juventus, who he’ll face in a Champions League double-header on October 23 and November 11.

Lukaku has scored 45 goals in 78 international matches for Belgium.

Juve have a great project in place and they just keep going. Every year they try to get stronger,” said the former Everton goal machine.

“Without doubt, Juve are one of the two or three best teams in Europe. They’ve got a great coach on the bench and extraordinary players in every area of the team.

“Cristiano Ronaldo stands out, but watch out for the others too. Paulo Dybala is already impressive and getting stronger, while I love Douglas Costa.

Lukaku extended his lead as Belgium’s all time leading goalscorer to 15 with his 44th and 45th international strike in his country’s 2-1 win over Switzerland on Friday.
