He has already scored two goals in three friendly appearances for Manchester United, including one against City, and according to a teammate of his in Belgium’s national team, this is just the beginning.
I think he will do very well. Everyone knows what his qualities are and he will do what he has to do. I think he will score 20-25 goals for United a season and that will speak for itself
Kevin de Bruyne told reporters talking about Romelu Lukaku, commenting on what he can offer United, but also how some people and media are treating his international teammate after the huge amount of money United spent to sign him from Everton.
There’s a lot said about these big transfers, people mock him and other players on social media. You know it’s there but you just can’t care about that. You just have to do your job
the Manchester City midfielder said, before praising his new Man United opponent even further.
If you see his ratio of goals, 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
de Bruyne said. Last, he was asked if he can compare Lukaku to someone else. He couldn’t.
Obviously he has his way of playing. Don’t compare him to Messi. He’s a big physical guy and can be awesome
the Belgian replied, acknowledging that Lukaku is a… special case.
