Romelu Lukaku has stated that he did not have to think long and hard, before joining United, after an offer was made.
United confirmed on Saturday that a £75 million fee for Romelu Lukaku has been accepted by Everton.
The 24-year-old scored 25 goals last season and was also courted by Chelsea, but opted to reunite with Mourinho.
“It’s the biggest club in the world. It’s a club that’s hungry to win the league again, to be dominant in the world again and the sort of opportunity I always wanted since a child,” he told ESPN.
“When they came calling I didn’t have to think twice. So I’m really delighted to hopefully be part of their history.”
“Who would say no to the biggest club in the world,” he asked. “The best stadium in England, the best fans. It’s a perfect opportunity. I always said I want to play for a team that’s challenging for every trophy that there is.
“I think Manchester United wants to be the dominant force and if you look at the history it says enough. To become part of a club like them is something I really wanted and I’m thankful for the opportunity they gave me and now it’s time to work harder than I ever did before and I’m willing to do it.”
