"A lot of people don't think I should be part of that system," Lukaku told told the LightHarted Podcast with Josh Hart.

"That's my feeling from the conversations that I have, I just know.
 
"For me, the thing that makes me laugh a lot is... how the hell is s*** going bad in my team, but when I play in my national team, it's good? And I'm happy."
 
The Belgian dropped down the pecking order when Solskjaer arrived in December last year, seemingly fuelling the exit talk but the striker admits he did not feel protected.
 
"I think a lot of stuff has been said, where I didn't feel protected," he added.
 
"A lot of rumours, 'Rom is going to go there, they don't want Rom' and nobody came out and shot it down."
