Manchester United have well and truly set the transfer market on fire this weekend after completing the huge signing of Romelu Lukaku from Everton.
The Red Devils beat Lukaku’s former employers Chelsea to his signature on Saturday and he’s now passed a medical ahead of his proposed move- sending the Red Devils supporters at the bar here in the Tavern into absolute meltdown.
It was just the signing they were calling out for having lost Zlatan Ibrahimovic earlier this summer and he’s expected to be a big part of this United team going forward this campaign.
And speaking to ESPN earlier this weekend, Lukaku has spoken of his joy at joining Manchester United, calling them ‘the best club in the world’.
“This is an opportunity that I’ve always wanted since I was a child,” Lukaku told ESPN.
“When [Manchester United] came calling, I didn’t have to think twice. So I’m really delighted to hopefully be part of their history.”
“My mind was already set. I gave my word, and I don’t look back,” he said. “I didn’t look back since, and I was already mentally preparing to be part of the team.”
“I would say, ‘Who would say no to the biggest club in the world,” he added.
Lukaku’s arrival at Old Trafford also sees Wayne Rooney return to his boyhood club after a long spell at Old Trafford with the Red Devils.
