Lukaku was in particularly inspired form for Belgium’s win over Brazil on Friday night, helping his country reach the World Cup semi-finals.

It’s easy to see how the 25-year-old could be a good fit at Real Madrid, who could do with a top class signing at centre-forward after Karim Benzema’s dip in form last season.
