In a surprising twist of football commentary, former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke has emerged as an advocate for his old club to consider a loan move for Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku during the ongoing transfer window.

Lukaku’s footballing journey has been intriguingly intertwined with Manchester United. His two-year stint at Old Trafford from 2017 to 2019 saw him notch an impressive tally of 42 goals in 96 matches across various competitions.

This tenure was succeeded by a move to Inter Milan where he played an instrumental role in securing the Serie A title for the Italian outfit.

Fast forward to the present, and Lukaku finds himself back at Chelsea for his second stint with the club. However, his time in west London hasn’t aligned with expectations, leading to speculation about his future.

Chelsea’s reported intention to offload the 30-year-old following his loan spell at Inter Milan last season has ignited numerous transfer speculations.

Among these, Juventus appeared to be a likely destination for Lukaku. Yet, in a surprising turn of events, Tottenham Hotspur has now entered the picture, eyeing Lukaku as a potential replacement for Harry Kane.

Dwight Yorke however advocates for a rather interesting reunion. He believes that Lukaku could find his stride again at Manchester United, especially considering the current circumstances.

Yorke feels Lukaku could be a valuable asset for Erik ten Hag’s side if the club opted to sign him for a second time, especially with new striker Rasmus Hojlund out injured.

‘Romelu Lukaku is absolutely still good enough to play for a top-six club,’ Yorke told OLBG.

‘I think Man United or Tottenham should take Lukaku on a short-term loan deal and agree to pay a certain amount of his wages.

‘As much as people say about Lukaku, he has a very impressive goalscoring record and he doesn’t get as much credit as he deserves.

‘If you have a fired-up Lukaku who wants to play for you, he’s a match-winner and a handful for any opponent in the world.

‘Man United have invested heavily in Rasmus Hojlund, but if you want to compete with the best then Lukaku is that player who can score 15 to 20 goals in a season, which is priceless and hard to find in today’s game.

‘Lukaku is still only 30-years-old and a proven goalscorer, I think whoever gets him on a short loan deal will have done good and subtle business.’

As Manchester United kick-started their Premier League campaign with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Wolves, attention turns to the potential realization of Yorke’s proposition.

With a visit to face Tottenham Hotspur on the horizon, the dynamics of the transfer window and Lukaku’s potential role in it continue to pique interest.

The suggestion of a Lukaku loan move back to Manchester United offers a blend of familiarity, potential resurgence, and a tactical edge that could rejuvenate both the player and the club’s attack.

While it remains to be seen if this unexpected twist in the transfer narrative will materialize, it’s clear that Yorke’s perspective adds an intriguing layer to the ever-evolving world of football transfers.
