Romelu Lukaku was linked with Chelsea earlier in the summer but the Belgian joined Manchester United and Chelsea smashed the club transfer record for Alvaro Morata.

Arsenal legend Paul Merson believes Morata is a better fit for Chelsea because Lukaku doesn’t have the intelligence to play alongside Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas.

“Alvaro Morata is a top player but how long will it take him to settle?” Merson told the Daily Star.

“I don’t think Chelsea missed out on Romelu Lukaku. Morata is a better fit for them. But he’ll need time to adapt to English football.

“Lukaku’s not bright enough to play with Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas.

“He needs the ball over the top, and he’ll get that at Manchester United.

“But I still don’t think United have enough to open teams up. They don’t have enough guile.”
