£75m Striker wants to create his own Legacy following Manchester United move

Romelu Lukaku

Belgium international Romelu Lukaku is looking to create his own history at Manchester United following his £75m move from Everton earlier in the month. The 24-year-old bagged 25 goals in the Premier League last term, and he was only behind Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane in the Golden Boot race.

Despite this, Lukaku does not believe that he is the finished product, and he still has a lot of work to do in order to progress further in his professional career.

“I can’t say I’m the complete package,” he told BBC Sport. “There is a lot of work to be done and I’m delighted that there is as it means I can become even better than I am.”

Meanwhile, Lukaku has earned comparisons with Didier Drogba over the years, but the Belgian insists that his game is totally different from the Blues legend.

“Drogba is more of a hold-up player, a target man. I prefer to have ball to feet and run in behind,” he added. “I’m Romelu Lukaku, I want to create my own history.”

Lukaku had found the net in two of United’s four pre-season outings, and he is expected to start up front when the Red Devils take on Barcelona in the final game of their United States tour in Landover, Maryland on Wednesday.

Manchester United have signed just two players in the form of Lukaku and Victor Lindelof this summer, but Jose Mourinho remains hopeful of securing a couple more signings before the close of the transfer window.
