Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku is a "crazy" talent who can still get even better, according to former Chelsea team-mate Didier Drogba.

The Belgium international, who first moved to England with Chelsea in 2011, has been one of the United stars to benefit the most from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's spell as caretaker manager and is expected to be involved in Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final at Wolves.

And Drogba thinks his former team-mate, who is still only 25, can develop even further in the coming years.

"I am really happy for him because I remember the way he started with us. He was a kid and now he is developing but he is still young," Drogba told Omnisport at the Geneva Motor Show.

"People forget that he is still young because he has been around for so long now. But the kid is still young and despite his age, he scored so many many, many goals. He still has room for improvement. It's crazy.

"You don't need to play much, you need to score goals and that's what he did [against PSG]. People talk, talk, talk but the guy is scoring his goals. He is not maybe your fancy striker, but the guy is performing."

Having failed to score in nine consecutive appearances, Lukaku netted twice in wins over Crystal Palace, Southampton and Paris Saint-Germain to re-establish his importance to Manchester United.
