Just last week, Manchester United legend Gary Neville said that a manager like Pep Guardiola and Jurgen won’t want to sign a Romelu Lukaku.

With Lukaku having been confirmed as a Chelsea player, Neville has expounded on his statement and has backed Lukaku to help Chelsea win the Premier League.

Neville believes that Chelsea’s signing of Lukaku makes the club a serious contender for the title and he has backed Lukaku to score 25 to 30 goals this season.

“They are going to be serious this season. They were last season but they’re going to be really serious in terms of the Premier League,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“Romelu Lukaku makes them very, very dangerous. I said last week that Pep Guardiola wouldn’t sign Lukaku, City wouldn’t have been in for him because he wouldn’t suit the manager.

“But for Chelsea, he will score a ton of goals, he’s perfect for that club. I know he’s been there before but this time he comes back with maturity, confidence, and hundreds of goals under his belt.

“I talk about gold signings where I’ve got no doubt they will be a success. He will do the 25-30 goals. I’ve got no doubts over him.

“He will go into that Chelsea team and make them real challenges for the Premier League title. He’s a game-changer for them in terms of pushing Man City, Man United and Liverpool for the title.”
