Everton star Romelu Lukaku has admitted that he is open to a Manchester United switch and also suggested that he is willing to work under Jose Mourinho once again. The striker and the Portuguese tactician were at Chelsea before the latter offloaded him to Goodison Park in 2013.

Louis van Gaal is under pressure at United as the Red Devils have struggled this term, which saw them get eliminated from the group stages of the Champions League and were knocked out by Liverpool in the last 16 of the Europa League. According to a report by The Sun, Mourinho, who is without a job after he was sacked at Chelsea, is set to replace the Dutchman at Old Trafford in the summer.

Lukaku joined the Merseyside club on loan and completed a permanent transfer to Everton a year later in 2014. He has been in fine form for Roberto Martinez's side since joining them and has scored 25 goals in all competitions this season, which has seen him attract interest from top clubs across Europe.

"Some people will say that I need to convince him (Mourinho) but it's not a question of that. Three years ago I was 20 and I wasn't ready to be immediately effective in a top team," Lukaku told Derniere Heure.

"Several good seasons, including the current one, have changed the situation. I'll be 23 (in May) and I could leave this summer."

"When I was little, (Bayern and United) were two teams that impressed me by their offensive force. We'll see what will happen. Anyway, it is always nice to be linked with such clubs, this is proof that they watch me. The rest is the business of my manager," he added.

The Belgium international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford and the player's father believes the attacker should join either United or Bayern Munich. The Everton frontman has also expressed his desire to play in the Champions League next season.
