Romelu Lukaku joins Manchester United

Romelu Lukaku joins Manchester United

Manchester United have successfully clinched the signing of Romelu Lukaku from under Chelsea‘s nose.

The Belgium international was tipped to make a comeback to his former club after a successful spell at Everton which saw him mature and become a top striker.

It was understood that Alvaro Morata was Manchester United‘s main target up front but as a surprise to many, Lukaku‘s deal was being cooked from under the table.

Mourinho, who has previously managed Lukaku at Chelsea had this to say:

Romelu is a natural fit for Manchester United. He is a big personality and a big player. It is only natural that he wants to develop his career at the biggest club.

“He will be a great addition to the group and I know they will make him very welcome. I am really looking forward to working with him again.”

There’s a good chance that United‘s former legendary player Wayne Rooney going back to his childhood club Everton also played a great part in the deal going in the Red Devils’ favor.

Lukaku saw this move as a deal he couldn’t refuse:

“I would like to start by thanking Everton and the fans for the last four wonderful seasons, I have made some special friends and we have shared some amazing moments.

“However, when Manchester United and Jose Mourinho come knocking at the door it is an opportunity of a lifetime and one that I could not turn down.

“You could see the fight, determination and the spirit in this team during the Europa League final and I want to become a part of that.

“I cannot wait to run out at Old Trafford in front of 75,000 fans but before that pre-season is where the hard work starts and I am looking forward to that first training session.”
