ROMELU LUKAKU has given Manchester United a massive Champions League fitness boost.
The 25-year-old will miss Saturday’s clash against Watford with the foot injury that crocked him for Belgium duty in the international break.
But he returned to England today after treatment at a private clinic in Antwerp and could make the midweek clash against Wolves.
Lukaku is targeting a comeback next week to get himself match-fit to face Barcelona the following week.
He wants game-time before facing Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti in the Champions League quarter-final on April 10.
SunSport revealed two weeks ago that Lukaku had suffered a muscle injury on his foot and faced a spell on the sidelines.
The ex-Chelsea striker picked up the problem during the European win over Paris Saint-Germain when he scored two goals during United’s incredible comeback.
He needed treatment to his right ankle after a challenge from Marquinhos just before the hour mark – and it was unsure how long he would face out.
But having him back within days of the return after the international break is a massive boost for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Scans showed a muscle problem instead of damage to a metatarsal, allowing Lukaku to get target a return after a week of rest.
