Romelu Lukaku a ‘natural fit’ for Manchester United
Romelu Lukaku is a ‘natural fit’ for Manchester United according to former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
The Belgian was frustrated with limited first-team appearance at Chelsea and was sold to Everton by then Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho for £28 million.
Though Chelsea were reportedly desperate to re-sign him and even made a late move for the Belgian.
But the Belgian who scored 25 goals last season had his heart set on reuniting with his former manager Jose Mourinho and playing for the club which he considers as ‘the biggest club in the world’
‘Romelu is a natural fit for Manchester United,’ Mourinho told the club website.
“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.”

“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.” said Lukaku
