Romelu Lukaku still needs to be replaced at Manchester United, according to former Red Devils midfielder Paul Ince. Lukaku left United for Inter Milan last summer for a fee of £74million. The Belgium international has enjoyed a fine debut campaign under Antonio Conte, scoring 33 goals in 50 appearances ahead of Friday's Europa League final against Sevilla. That is more than double the tally of 15 goals Lukaku managed in his second and final campaign at Old Trafford. Ince does not think the 27-year-old would have scored as many goals if he stayed at United.
However, he says it is clear Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs a frontman who can provide what the former Everton man can. "No I don't think he would be [scoring that amount of goals for United]," Ince said on BT Sport. JUST IN: Liverpool backed to complete 'amazing' signing to enhance title chances
