Romelu Lukaku has admitted that it was difficult to turn down a move to Manchester United.The Belgian striker completed his medical ahead of his £75million move from Everton.

Lukaku snubbed a return to his former club and current premier league champions Chelsea in order to reunite with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.


“It’s a club that is hungry to win the league again, to be dominant in the world again.”

“It’s the sort of opportunity I’ve always wanted since a child.”

“When they came calling I didn’t have to think twice, so I’m really delighted to be part of history.”


“Who would say no to the biggest club in the world? The best stadium in England, the best fans. I mean, it’s the perfect opportunity.”

“I always said I wanted to play for a team that’s challenging for every trophy that there is there. I think Manchester United at the minute wants to be the dominant team, the dominant force.”

“Now it’s time to work hard, work harder than I ever did before and I’m willing to do it.”
