Everton striker Romelu Lukaku is set to join Manchester United despite being thrown out of Chelsea by Jose Mourinho while he was Chelsea boss.
Lukaku was linked with a return to Chelsea all summer but Manchester United hijacked the deal for the striker after Chelsea failed to agree a fee with Everton.
Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler revealed he is baffled by Lukaku’s decision to join Manchester United and reunite with a manager who threw him out of Chelsea.
“I have to admit I’m baffled by Romelu Lukaku’s decision to join Manchester United,” Fowler wrote in Daily Mirror.
“It’s a funny one, why would he want to go and play for a manager who has already twice deemed him not good enough, which is exactly what Jose Mourinho has done, whatever way he wraps it up.
“Ok, I get he’ll say he’s improved, I get he is no doubt a better player, but really? It’s a strange one for me, especially as this deal looks suspiciously like it is a last minute deal.
“Everyone said he was nailed on for Chelsea and they were quietly confident, United seemed to be in for Moratta, so what has changed so much to persuade Lukaku to risk his confidence, reputation and future with Mourinho.”
