Romelu Lukaku Moves To Old Trafford, Joins First-Team Squad
  • PublishedJuly 11, 2017

Lukaku has signed a five-year contract with the Old Trafford outfit and will join the rest of the first-team squad when they fly out to Los Angeles on Sunday.

Lukaku has been holidaying with close friend and new team-mate Pogba in California, where United are set to arrive for the start of their summer tour.

Jose Mourinho is delighted to have signed the forward, telling the club’s 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.”

This will be Lukaku’s second stint under Mourinho following their previous spell together at Chelsea. However, the Portuguese loaned the striker to Everton soon after returning to Stamford Bridge in 2013 before selling him to the Toffees on a £28m deal the following summer.
