5 reasons why Romelu Lukaku will be a hit at Manchester United

5 reasons why Romelu Lukaku will be a hit at Manchester United

The previous record was held by Lukaku's friend Paul Pogba in the first official photo of him wearing the United kit following his return to Old Trafford last summer, which got more than 88,000 retweets.

He had that with Drogba at Chelsea and Zlatan Ibrahimovic filled the role to great effect at United last season, so now he has a young, hungry, powerful forward he hopes will do the same.

Although no longer on the payroll, Ibrahimovic is using United's training facilities during his rehabilitation with reports claiming he is likely to be ready to play again at some point in early 2018.

If you are going to win a title, it is nearly a given that you are going to need a striker capable of scoring 25-30 goals in the season. We last won the league in the 2012-13 season in what was Sir Alex Ferguson's last game as manager, but in Jose Mourinho, we have a manager that is primed to win the league.

Jose Mourinho signings age

The Old Trafford defender is continuing to recover well from the foot surgery he underwent in May, which is likely to see him miss the start of the new campaign.

Lukaku is younger, more mobile and will provide the goals and three points; re-signing Ibrahimovic could be the masterstroke that helps United win the league and breathes new life into the ageing lion. Ah I know, time for our "source" to do its work.

Manchester United completed their signing of Lukaku from Everton on Monday night in a £100m deal, with Wayne Rooney travelling in the opposite direction. He is a big personality and a big player.

The Red Devils then face a host of Europe's biggest clubs including; Real Madrid, Barcelona and city rivals Manchester City.
