Everton have identified a potential replacement for Romelu Lukaku who is speculated to be leaving the club this summer.
He has since been linked with clubs including Manchester United and his former side Chelsea, but says the rumour mill has got out of hand.
Romelu Lukaku has responded to media reports he could snub a move to Chelsea in favour of Manchester United with apparent annoyance.
However, Lukaku has expressed his disapproval with the speculation on Twitter, requesting that the media wait until something has been made official regarding his future before reporting on it.
The 23-year-old has enjoyed a prolific season this year, scoring 24 goals and providing six assists in 35 Premier League games for the Toffees.
The report stated Lukaku is torn between a move to Chelsea or Old Trafford and is keen to play under United's former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
The United manager has also lost top-scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic to a knee ligament injury.
Meulensteen was assistant to Sir Alex Ferguson from 2007 to 2013, helping the Red Devils to three league titles and a Champions League crown, and believes that if they want to return to that level, they need someone other than Lukaku.
"Lukaku has had a fantastic season, he's a goalscorer etc etc".
'That is where he falls short, I think, and it's something that's not as exposed at a club like Everton'.
"Yes he will bring power, he'll bring some strength but if you look at the strikers United have had [over the years] does he fit in that same line of striker?"
