Manchester United have officially announced the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Everton on a five-year contract.
He has been out in Los Angeles with Paul Pogba training all week but will now join the rest of the squad for the pre-season tour of America.
Speaking about his new signing, Mourinho was full of praise for Lukaku.
“Romelu is a natural fit for Manchester United. He is a big personality and a big player,” he said.
“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.”
He’ll be an incredible addition and plugs a whole in the team left by Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s departure with the big Swede scoring 28 goals across all competitions last season.
It’s brilliant that the deal has finally been wrapped up as I can’t wait to see him in action during our first pre-season game against LA Galaxy.
