Romelu Lukaku hopes to play in Serie A "sooner or later", with the Manchester United forward describing a potential move to Italy as a "dream".

The Belgium international joined United from Everton in 2017 under Jose Mourinho in a deal worth an initial £75m and has since scored 42 goals in 95 matches.

Federico Pastorello, Lukaku's representative, revealed earlier this month that the 25-year-old would discuss his future in the summer despite having three years remaining on his contract at Old Trafford.

Speaking on Sky Italia's Lords of Football, Lukaku said: "Playing in Serie A is a dream, it would be really a dream.

"I hope to be able to play sooner or later, even if at the moment I am focused on the United."
