Romelu Lukaku's Dad wants his son to join Manchester United or Bayern Munich

There's been plenty of speculation over the future of Romelu Lukaku of late and it seems the Belgian striker's family aren't willing to do much to stop it.

Lukaku has been in scintillating form this season for the Toffees having scored 19 goals in the Premier League.

However Roberto Martinez's side have struggled for consistency this term and they currently sit in 12th place in the league, 12 points adrift of the top four.

Such has been the former Chelsea ace's form this season that he's been linked with Bayern Munich and Real Madrid - however now his father has spoken out about a potential transfer to Manchester United.

The Red Devils are said to be seeking a new forward this summer and Lukaku could well be the man for the job, even if it means a reunion with the man who sold him at Chelsea, Jose Mourinho.

Roger Lukaku revealed that while there's interest in his son from a host of top European sides, he believes a move to either Manchester United or Bayern Munich would be for the best.

"He's ready. I see that there is interest from Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Chelsea and Manchester United," Lukaku Sr. said.

"I think he must choose Manchester United or Bayern Munich. Manchester United is a team under construction with no real focus. Bayern Munich is a machine where he can rotate well. The only condition is if Robert Lewandowski leaves."

The 22-year-old has since reacted to his father's comments, telling Sky Sports: "That's my Dad's point of view. Those are the teams that he likes so, yeah, it's good to hear."

Everton signed Lukaku from Chelsea in a deal worth £28 million in 2014, and any potential suitor will have to pay well in excess of that. Recent reports have suggested his fee could be as much as £60 million.

Do you think Lukaku will be leaving Everton in the summer?
