New Manchester United signing Romelu Lukaku has told ESPN he is joining “the biggest club in the world, a club that wants to win the league again and be dominant in the world again”.
The Belgian international, who joins the Red Devils on a £75m move from Everton, said: “I’ve always wanted the opportunity since a child, when they came calling I didn’t have to think twice. I’m really delighted to hopefully be a part of their history.
“I’ve always said I want to play for a team that is challenging for every trophy that there is, – he added – I think Manchester United want to be that dominant force. If you look at the history it says enough”.
“To become part of a club like them is something I really wanted and I am thankful for the opportunity they gave me. Now it’s time to work hard, harder than I did before, and I am willing to do it. Hopefully it will come a good way.”
Then Lukaku ended: “Who would say no to the biggest club in the world, the best stadium in England, the best fans? It’s a perfect opportunity”.
It is understood Chelsea had set personal terms with the striker, but Manchester United’s last-ditch effort secured the signature of the 24-year-old.
