Phil Neville believes Romelu Lukaku will be a brilliant addition at Manchester United after being officially announced on Monday afternoon.
He’s been an exceptional player for Everton, constantly scoring goals, however, has often received criticism for his performances in the big games versus the Premier League top six.
The Belgian brings something that Man United have lacked, even with Zlatan Ibrahimovic last season, which is scoring goals, especially against lower sides as supporters saw with the disappointing draws which held us back in the league.
Here’s what Neville previously had to say compared to once Lukaku signed a United contract.

Alvaro Morata would have been a better option if we wanted an all-around polished player, but Lukaku is proven in the Premier League and also performs better in some situations to Morata.
He’ll be able to understand teams in England easier and with a better team around him and Paul Pogba continuously playing him balls to run on to, I genuinely believe Lukaku could go on to have an exceptional season at Old Trafford, at least I hope so.
The Belgian now has everything he needs to become a massive success at United and I genuinely hope he takes the opportunity to lead the line moving forward.
