Lukaku believes Haaland and Mbappe are the new Messi, Ronaldo



Inter Milan loanee Romelu Lukaku has tipped the duo of Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe to ‘dominate football for the next 10 years.

He said both players would take up the mantle from Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, who have been in dominance for over 10 years now.

Lukaku is preparing to lead Inter Milan against Haaland’s Manchester City in the final of the Champions League in Istanbul on Saturday.

The 22-year-old Haaland has already scored 52 goals in 52 games across all competitions, helping the Cityzenes to the Premier League title and FA Cup victory,

On the other hand, Mbappe, 24, scored 41 goals in 43 games to take his tally with the club to an immense 212 goals in 260 games.

The pair of forwards are already at the top of the world game and Lukaku thinks they will remain there for another decade.

“I think he[Haaland] will dominate, with Mbappe, world football for the next 10 years,” Lukaku told CNN.

“They will be fighting from the new generation…They will really take over (from Messi and Ronaldo) in the next two years.”
