Speaking to The Mirror, Lukaku said: “I have had possibly the five best strikers of the last ten years as mentors.

“I had Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka, Samuel Eto’o, Fernando Torres and now, Thierry Henry. That’s not bad, is it?

“It is the best thing that could happen in my career because I am a young guy.

“Thierry for me is the best. Every day whether it is positive and negative I take it in my stride because I know what is expected from the top level.

“Working with him in Belgium I really take my time with him asking questions, I don’t take him for granted, I sometimes ask him questions for two hours.

“I will get the information that I need and take it on board.”

Another incredible striker Lukaku will be able to learn from is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who United resigned on Thursday.

The Swede will help Lukaku improve his game even further while offering Jose Mourinho something different in the goalscoring department.
