Romelu Lukaku has revealed Jose Mourinho plans to make some major moves in the summer transfer window.

The Manchester United manager made Lukaku the second most expensive player in the club’s history when he paid Everton £75million for his services last summer.

Lukaku has repaid Mourinho’s faith to the tune of 25 goals in all competitions this season, including the opener in Saturday’s FA Cup quarter final win over Brighton.

Despite the Belgium international’s efforts, United are lagging behind rivals Manchester City in the Premier League and were humiliated in Europe by Sevilla in midweek.

Mourinho has spent over £300million since taking over from Louis van Gaal 18 months ago, but Lukaku is expecting more major investment over the course of the close season.

‘We are Manchester United, we have to improve every year and I know that a lot of players, a lot of good players, will come in next summer. That’s for sure,’ said Lukaku.

‘That is something I look forward to, in order to improve the squad, and what the manager also looks forward to because next year we have to win. We will have to try and win as many trophies as we can.’

Lukaku has established himself as United’s undisputed first choice striker this term, but insists there is much more to come from him.

‘I think I am a player that really thrives on high-intensity football,’ he added. ‘It is best for me because I’m powerful, really fast and so it’s something that can help the team.

‘If we keep on going like that we are going to have more opportunities, I will get myself more opportunities.

‘I can put my team-mates also in better positions as well, and at the end of the day I want my team-mates to win.

‘I am really disappointed we didn’t beat Seville because we dream of winning trophies like the Champions League.

‘We want to deliver what the fans want to see, winning games, playing attractive football.’
