Romelu Lukaku has been criticized by former Manchester United star, Gary Pallister, for “disrespecting” the club.
Lukaku admitted during the international break, that he hopes to play in Italy.
His comments have drawn criticism from Pallister, who feels the 25-year-old was out of order speaking out about his future, at a time when United are in turmoil after a poor start to the season.
“Real Madrid has always been the ultimate destination and if they come knocking even a club of United’s size can’t stop them.
“I think it’s disrespectful at times if you start mentioning other clubs when you’re actually contracted to the club you’re at.
“At a time when a club is under real pressure to have their leading goal-scorer say he’d like to move abroad – if that’s what he has done – is not the ideal scenario,” he told 888Sport.
