Belgium international striker, Romelu Lukaku, has officially completed his move from Everton to Manchester United as the Red Devils on Monday announced that the striker had signed a five-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year.
As stated by United on their official website, the 24-year-old Belgian international striker will join the team in LA ahead of pre-season training.
In his first official interview, delighted Lukaku said:
“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,” he said.
Manchester United’s head coach, Jose Mourinho has this say about the EPL last season highest goal scorer.
“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,” Mourinho stated.
