Romelu Lukaku's agent has played down rumours linking the 17-year-old Anderlecht striker to Real Madrid despite admitting he has held talks with the Spanish giants.

The starlet made his senior debut aged 16 and went on to score 15 goals in 25 appearances in the Belgian league last season.

Lukaku has also been linked with Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Bayern Munich.

But Christophe Henrotay believes the Belgium under-21 international is too young for a big money move.

"I have talked with Real Madrid but the fact is that other European sides are interested in Lukaku, including Barcelona, Liverpool and Bayern Munich," said Henrotay.

"The mere fact that I am in contact with Real Madrid does not mean that Romelu will go to the Spanish club.

"Much depends on the performance of Anderlecht in the Champions League. If the Belgians qualify, he will not move this season.

"Still, he is too young to play for a club like Real Madrid."
