Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has vowed to return to his boyhood club Anderlecht before his career comes to an end.

Lukaku has spent the majority of his time in the Premier League, having joined Chelsea from Anderlecht as an 18-year-old in 2011.

The forward burst on to the scene as a youngster and earned his big-money move as a result of his goalscoring exploits during the two-year stint at the Belgian club.

But Lukaku has endured a mixed debut campaign for United this season following his £75million summer move from Everton - scoring 19 goals in all competitions so far.

The 24-year-old is anticipating many more years playing in England but already has plans to return to the club where he began his professional career. 

'My dream was always to play for Anderlecht,' Lukaku admitted. 

'Before the end of my career I will definitely return, I can already promise that. I had a wonderful time there.'

Lukaku also insisted he is confident United can stage a title tilt despite being 16 points behind leaders City with just 11 games left in the campaign.

United boss Jose Mourinho thinks otherwise and has already annointed their rivals as champions and resigned himself to finishing second.

But the 24-year-old Belgium international is not letting that discourage him.

'If we do everything right until the end of the season then we can still do it,' he recently told Sky Sports.

'I do not think the same as the manager. It [the league] is not done yet, we have to keep fighting.'

The Premier League will be anything but Mourinho's focus right now with an FA Cup match at Huddersfield on the weekend and three days later a trip to Sevilla for the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie.
