Romelu Lukaku has arrived at Manchester United with big dreams, saying he wants to emulate Cristiano Ronaldo and bag goals and trophies at the club.

Since his £75million switch from Everton, the Belgian striker – who scored 25 Premier League goals last season – has netted twice for the Red Devils and he believes there’s still has room for improvement as he tries to reach the level of four-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo, who scored over 100 goals as he claimed three Premier League titles and the Champions League during his six seasons at Old Trafford, Goal writes.

“I’m far from that level. But it’s the level I want to aim for. I’m 24, I can’t say I’m the complete package. I can’t say I’m in my prime,” Lukaku said.

“I’ll never say it’s good enough. It’s a pressure I put on myself. When you play for United you have to perform every week.”

He dismissed comparisons with former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, saying their styles are different …as are their clubs.

“Drogba is more of a hold-up player, a target man. I prefer to have ball to feet and run in behind. We’re totally different.

“We might have physical similarities but we’re totally different players. I’m Romelu Lukaku, I want to create my own history. I’m at United, he was at Chelsea.

“The manager has a masterplan and we are following his plan,” he said.

“For me it’s all about winning. I want to win. Now I’m at a club where winning is the most important thing. It’s something inside of me. I want to help my team-mates deliver wins game in game out.
