Romelu Lukaku's stock has risen immensely over the last few months.

Lukaku is now on global duty with Belgium, who have World Cup qualifiers against Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as Cyprus to contend with.

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku reportedly suffers an ankle injury, but scans from the Belgium medical team reveal that he has avoided a fracture.

Lukaku has made an excellent start to his United career, scoring ten goals in his first nine games in all competitions.

However, the 24-year-old did not train with his teammates on Monday evening as was instead checked over by doctors.

The striker, who scored in the 4-0 win over Crystal Palace, hurt himself and he was immediately sent for an MRI scan.

Belgium have already qualified for the 2018 World Cup, sitting eight points clear atop Group H with two matches remaining.

Meanwhile, Lukaku's lawyer, Robert Humphreys, on Monday entered a plea of not guilty on his behalf after the citation for an excessive noise complaint his client received in Los Angeles in July.

United's next Premier League match will be against Liverpool when the Premier League returns following the worldwide break on October 14.

He is now on worldwide duty with Belgium, and will instead send a lawyer to represent him at Los Angeles Airport Courthouse.
