Manchester United Striker Romelu Lukaku Has Been Made Into A Verb

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku is no stranger to criticism when it comes to his first touch.

The 26-year-old Belgium international has proven that he can be a deadly threat in the final third, but that hasn't stopped fans from mocking him for his lack of first touch.

And fans have now decided to unofficially turn his name into a verb.

According to fans, here's what Lukaku means as a verb: "Past tense: Lukaku'd

"1. To lose something under your control; mishandling due to lack of ability and/or concentration.

"E.g., 'I really like this girl, everything is going so well, I pray I don't Lukaku it.'"

Oh, and he even made it into the Urban Dictionary!

The United star's future remains uncertain and he is expected to make an exit from Old Trafford this summer.

And Inter Milan are leading the race to sign Lukaku, who called club boss Antonio Conte the "best coach in the world."

He told Sport Mediaset last week: "Good that Conte went to Inter, for me, he is the best coach in the world.

"As for my future, I have already made a decision that I still cannot communicate publicly out of respect for Manchester United with whom I have a contract.

"I am a big Serie A fan, those close to me know that I have always wanted to play in the English league and in the Italian one, I love Italy.

"And then Cristiano Ronaldo arrived, [Maurizio] Sarri will go to Juventus, [Carlo] Ancelotti is at Napoli, it will be an exciting Serie A.

"The club and my agent will talk about it but I have already made my decision."

Belgium boss Roberto Martínez also claimed that Lukaku wants to leave United in the summer.

"It is now important that Romelu finds the right club," he told Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws.

"It would be a good thing for both parties."
