Romelu Lukaku‘s signing for Manchester United is now official and former Chelsea boss José Mourinho commented this transfer with the Red Devils official website.
The current Man United manager aimed a dig to his former club claiming the Belgian striker has just signed for the “biggest club”:
“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.”
Lukaku, who snubbed Chelsea prefering a move to Old Trafford, added:
“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.”
