The Red Devils signed Lukaku in a £75m deal from Premier League rivals Everton despite interest from the centre-forward’s former club Chelsea.
The 24-year-old’s move to Manchester United was initially met with some scepticism given his lack of experience at a top club.
However, Lukaku helped to quash concerns about his ability to adapt to the Premier League with 10 goals in nine games in all competitions.
The summer signing’s scintillating start has come to an end, though.
Lukaku has only managed to score four goals in his last 15 games in all competitions to fall hopelessly out of form despite finding the net against Newcastle United, CSKA Moscow, Bournemouth and West Brom.
Indeed, Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s return from a long-term knee problem has only served to heap further pressure on the Manchester United signing.
Premier League legend Wright believes Lukaku’s poor hold-up play is causing the Manchester United number nine some serious problems.
“Lukaku was feeding off scraps,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“He should be holding the ball up. I said at the start of the season that he would have to continue to score goals because his hold-up play would frustrate Man United supporters.
“Man United have had some unbelievable strikers. He doesn’t link the play as well as he should.”
Manchester United supporters will be hoping Lukaku has turned a corner following successive Premier League goals in victories over Bournemouth and West Brom.
Lukaku scored 24 times in 36 games in the Premier League last season in the Manchester United striker’s final season at Everton.
