Back at the start of July, many football fans expected Romelu Lukaku to end up back at Chelsea, three years after leaving the west London outfit in search of regular first-team football.

It was no secret that Antonio Conte wanted the striker, who’d made up his mind to leave Everton towards the end of last season, at Stamford Bridge.

However, Conte and Chelsea ultimately missed out on the Belgium international after Jose Mourinho and Manchester United entered the race for his signature.

With a little help from Paul Pogba, one of his closest friends in football, Lukaku agreed to join the Red Devils on a five-year contract.

The fee, however, raised eyebrows. In order to bring him to Old Trafford, United forked out an eye-watering £75 million for the 24-year-old.

Lukaku has hit the ground running at United

This made Lukaku one of the most expensive players of all-time. Was he capable of justifying that huge price tag?

Although it’s still early days, it’s been a case of so far, so good. The Belgian has hit the ground running at United, scoring 11 goals in his first 10 appearances for the English giants.

And he will be bidding to continue his rich vein of form in his side’s biggest match of the season so far on Saturday lunchtime.

Lukaku can make Liverpool fans eat their words on Saturday

Given his former ties with Everton - and the fact this is his first match against Liverpool since joining United - Lukaku will no doubt be desperate to get himself on the scoresheet at Anfield this weekend.

And if that happens, there will be a fair few Liverpool fans regretting some of the tweets they posted when United announced Lukaku’s signature three months ago.


We’ve trawled through Twitter today and found some tweets that make for very interesting reading today.

If Lukaku finds the back of the net against Jurgen Klopp’s side this weekend, he will become the first Man Utd player to score eight goals in his first eight Premier League matches.


That £75 million is already looking like money very well spent.
