Romelu Lukaku explained that the offer to join Manchester United was just tempting to resist. "I didn't need to think twice - Who would say no to the biggest club in the world?", Belgian striker, who completed his 80 million euro move to United from Everton yesterday, told ESPN .
Lukaku says he is excited by the prospect "of being able to make history" with José Mourinho's team. "They have the best stadium in England, the best fans. This is the perfect opportunity. I always said I wanted to play for a team that's challenging for every trophy there is. I think Manchester United at the moment wants to be the dominant team, the dominant force. If you look at their history, it says it all. To become part of a club like them is something that I really wanted", he added.
The hard work starts now, says Lukaku
The 24-year-old promised that this is the moment "to work harder than ever" so that he can be at the peak of his powers for the challenges that lie ahead. "I think Mourinho will help me to become a better player. He knows how to improve players and turn them into winners. For me, this is the perfect opportunity. I'm 24 and I've never won a trophy, but I want to be part of a team which does win silverware. I think Mourinho is the right man to help me do that", he ended.
