Romelu Lukaku was a BARGAIN but he hasn’t proved himself yet – Roy Keane
ROMELU LUKAKU is yet to be truly tested at Manchester United, according to Roy Keane
The Belgium international was once again on the scoresheet for United in their 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow last night.
Lukaku grabbed two first-half goals to put Jose Mourinho’s side in the ascendency either side of Anthony Martial’s spot kick with Henrikh Mkhitaryan adding a fourth in the second half.
Lukaku has now scored 10 goals in just nine games since his summer move from Everton.
And United legend Keane believes the 24-year-old is proving to be a steal at £75million, but wants to see Lukaku doing it against United’s big rivals.
He has done great so far, but the big test for them is still to come for him
Roy Keane on Romelu Lukaku
“He was a bargain at £75million, it was obvious he was going to score goals,” Keane said on ITV.
“He has done great so far, but the big test for them is still to come for him.
“Man United have played nobody yet and even though you can only beat what is put in front of you, the bigger tests will come.
“The top United scorers have scored goals that really matter down the years and he has to deliver in the big games.
“It’s to score when your team are 1-0 or 2-0 up, but you need to do it in the crunch games.”
Lukaku will have a chance to increase his goal tally this weekend when United face Crystal Palace.
