Are Juventus looking to acquire Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku?

Juventus are interested in signing Lukaku: Reports

Without a doubt, Manchester United striker, Romelu Lukaku has not been at his best this season, going numerous matches at a stretch without finding the back of the net.

His poor form saw him getting benched under Mourinho, and he, himself, took a leave before Solskjaer's first match in charge.

Now reports suggest giants Juventus are interested in acquiring him to replace Mario Mandzukic.

Should Manchester United let him go?

All things considered, Manchester United should part ways with the Belgian international as soon as possible.

Lukaku has hardly shown the quality expected from a Manchester United striker.

He hasn't been able to contribute significantly this term.

His game off the ball has been really sub-standard, and it will only do United good to buy solid defenders and sell Lukaku to Juventus.

Analysis

How can Manchester United perform without a target man?

Lukaku was used as a target man by Mourinho, but as we saw in the match against Cardiff, United do not really need a target man at the moment.

They could play Rashford as a false nine and use a three-man forward line comprising of Rashford, Martial, and Lingard.

They also have an option to rotate the forward line between Mata and Sanchez.
