Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku believes the club should continue their push for the Premier League title despite trailing league leaders Manchester City by 13 points. The Red Devils picked up a solid 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town on Saturday, and this saw them close the gap on the league leaders, who could only garner a 1-1 draw versus Burnley.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the 24-year-old refused to give on the English crown, and feels United have to keep chasing their arch-rivals until the finish. Meanwhile, the Belgian admitted that the club should reinforce their squad further in the summer in order to improve on their performances from the ongoing campaign.
“Of course it is good [Mourinho’s new contract], everything is stable. If we do everything right until the end of the season, add in some reinforcements in the summer, we will be even stronger than we are now. I do not think the same as the manager. It [the league] is not done yet, we have to keep fighting,” he said.
Jose Mourinho has already admitted that the attacking options could remain the same for the 2018/19 season, but the midfield is in need of reinforcements with Michael Carrick due to retire from the game whilst Marouane Fellaini appears to have made his mind up to leave on a free transfer in the summer.
Scott McTominay has been a brilliant addition to the first-team squad from the academy ranks, but the club should recruit another world-class midfielder, who can add competition at the heart of the midfield.
