The father of Romelu Lukaku has revealed that the Everton striker is being chased by a number of clubs - but says he'd prefer his son to move to Manchester United or Bayern Munich.

Lukaku has been linked with a number of clubs during the course of the season, especially with Everton struggling in 12th in the Premier League.

The 22-year-old, a club record £28million signing in 2013, has 25 goals this season and 61 in 117 matches for the Toffees.

But Roger Lukaku has revealed in an interview with a Belgian newspaper that he would like his son to leave Goodison Park in the summer.

"He's ready. I see that there is interest from Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Chelsea and Manchester United," Roger Lukaku told Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws.

"I know his agent prefers Italy but I think he must choose Manchester United or Bayern Munich. Manchester United is a team under construction with no real focus.

"Bayern is a machine where he can rotate well. The only condition is if Robert Lewandowski leaves."

He added: "With the playing style of Bayern, Romelu will make a lot of goals. A return to Chelsea would make everything complicated.

"And Juventus has two, three strikers. Anyway (it must be) a team where he always plays, rotation is nothing for him. He takes care of himself well, he's not often injured and is physically strong."

"Every year, he gets better and more complete. I am sure he becomes the top scorer in the Premier League. He is growing towards a level where he will say, 'give me the ball, I'll find a solution'.

"Romelu has one great aspect in his character: he always wants to learn and to become better. The day he believes he can't learn anything anymore, there's something wrong. When he'll move to a bigger club, he will get more competition. That will make things more complicated."
