​Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez has urged star striker Romelu Lukaku to leave ​Manchester United this summer ​amid speculation of a move to ​Inter Milan

Lukaku has struggled with fitness issues over the last year, looking overweight and hence struggling to replicate his 2017/18 season heroics. Further, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly wants the Belgian out of the squad before pre season starts, as he does not fit into his more mobile style of play, where the forwards switch positions often and therefore need pace. 

According to Martinez, who worked with him during his time at ​Everton, Lukaku must leave the club in order to further his career and hold his place in the national team. 

“It is clear that he has to leave Manchester United,” Martinez told Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws, reported by ​Standard

“It would be a good thing for both parties. It is now important that Romelu finds the right club.”

Belgium’s record scorer, reportedly valued at £80 million by United, has scored three goals for Martinez’s men across two Euro 2020 qualifiers earlier this month. The target man himself ​sparked rumors earlier this month, claiming that he was going to have a busy summer and that Antonio Conte was the best manager in the world.
