Manchester United have completed the signing of Lukaku from Everton for £75million.Lukaku was unveiled as a United player on Monday as he became the world’s most expensive striker following his move from Everton.
The Belgium international has already joined the club’s pre-season tour as he aims to impress new manager Jose Mourinho.
Lukaku initially looked set to join Chelsea at the start of the transfer window but the Red Devils successfully hijacked the deal.
Romelu Lukaku Speaking to MUTV, he said “I am delighted, excited, I can’t wait to start, to be with the team, the manager, and to start a new part of my life. I am going to give my best, try to score as many goals as possible and try to win as many trophies. That is what they want. They want excitement on the pitch and this is something that I will try to deliver in every single game.”
The deal for the 24-year-old Belgium international is believed to include £15m in add-ons.
His former club Chelsea matched United’s bid but missed out on re-signing their former player after he opted to join his best friend Pogba and former coach Jose Mourinho.
Jose Mourinho “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.”
