Romelu Lukaku is an Old Trafford natural, who will score a mountain of goals for Manchester United , believes Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Reds legend Van Nistelrooy is still ­revered by United fans for his ­phenomenal goalscoring feats after being signed in 2001 by Sir Alex Ferguson.

Van ­Nistelrooy said: “Lukaku has made a good start at dealing with the pressure as a striker at United.
