Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has surprisingly hinted he could end his international career with Belgium a lot sooner than many would imagine.

Lukaku Hits Back At Mourinho's Critics, Shares Insight Into What It's Like Playing For Him

At 25 years old, Lukaku is Belgium's record goalscorer and has already represented his nation at three major tournaments since his senior debut eight years ago.

However, the forward has now stated that he plans to stop playing international football after the European Championships in 2020, despite the fact he will be just 27 then.

"After the Euros, I think I'll stop," he told the Business Insider.

"I'm 25, I'm like, I'm not even in my prime yet.

"So I still see (younger players) as competition right now because they try to take my spot and I don't want to give it up to them.

"So like another two years, and then they can have it."
