 “Manchester United are a football club that demands success. Lukaku has to be strong enough to take up that challenge. If he does that then, with the ability he has got, he will be a huge success.


Andy Cole –

“He’s a massive signing for United. There are all big-money signings nowadays but he has proven himself in the Premier League. He’ll get goals and that’s what United missed last season. I think he’s got plenty of those in him.”


Ander Herrera –

“He’s going to score a lot of goals for us, but I also want to speak about the work he does holding the ball for the team. He is very strong and it’s difficult to win the ball from him, so he’s going to be very important for us.”


Marcus Rashford –

“He’s in a good place in his career and he has come here at the right time. We are still getting to know each other off the pitch and that’s what a team is about, we have to get to know each other both on and off the pitch.”


Kevin De Bruyne –

“You just have to do your job and I think he will score 20 to 25 goals a season for United, that will speak for itself. If you see his goal ratio, it’s incredible. He’s one of the best in the world and what is he, 24? You can say that about him at that age.”


Vincent Kompany –

“The one thing you can get with Romelu is an incredible drive to improve and to score goals. It’s something really unique that I’ve  observed over the past few years because he was at Anderlecht, which is the same youth system where I come from and I’ve really followed his progress.”


Michael Carrick –

“I’ve tried to tackle him a few times and got nowhere near him, so at least I won’t have to do that too often, he’s a big guy, has big presence and scores a lot of goals. That is what we are going to need from him, this is what he is going to bring and I am sure he’ll have a great time here.”


Ruud van Nistelrooy –

“I expect he’ll start to hit his peak now. From the club’s point of view, it’s the perfect time to sign him. Over the next six, seven or eight years, United will hopefully have a great centre-forward in Romelu.”

“As players, we’re all delighted that he is at United. We have always had the same dream, the same goals – he’s one of my best friends off the pitch and a top-class player too. I’m very happy for him.”


Jose Mourinho –

“Romelu is a natural fit for Manchester United. He’s a big personality and a big player. It is only natural that he wants to develop his career at the biggest club. He will be a great addition to the team, I’m really looking forward to working with him once again.”
