Overview

Romelu Menama Lukaku Bolingoli is a Belgian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Premier League club Manchester United and the Belgium national team. He is one of only five players to have scored 50 Premier League goals before their 23rd birthday, and the fifth youngest to have scored 100 goals in the competition. At international level he holds the all-time record of 38 goals scored for the Belgian national team.

Lukaku started his career with local club Rupel Boom, before joining Lierse, where he earned a move to Anderlecht of the Belgian Pro League in 2006. Lukaku made his professional debut while still at school at age 16, and became the 2009–10 top scorer in Belgium as Anderlecht won the Belgian championship. He also won the Belgian Ebony Shoe in 2011. In the 2011 summer transfer window, Lukaku joined Premier League club Chelsea. He did not appear regularly in his first season there, and spent the following two seasons on loan at West Bromwich Albion and Everton respectively, signing permanently for the latter for a club record £28 million in 2014. Three years later, Lukaku signed for Manchester United for a club record transfer fee of up to £90 million.

Lukaku made his senior international debut for Belgium in 2010, and has since earned over 60 caps and is their all-time record goalscorer with 38 goals. He has also represented the country at the 2014 World Cup, Euro 2016 and the 2018 World Cup.
