Keane: Why Lukaku will pick Chelsea every day of the week over Arsenal

Romelu Lukaku made a return to Chelsea this summer for a club-record fee of £98million and scored on his debut as the Blues beat Arsenal 2-0 on Sunday.

According to Manchester United legend Roy Keane, Lukaku will pick Chelsea over Arsenal because no top player wants to join the Gunners.

Keane told Sky Sports: “You’ve seen Manchester United get [Raphael] Varane and Liverpool get [Virgil] Van Dijk when they were building and Arsenal need to buy an established player.

“Which top players are really going to want to come to Arsenal? That’s why they’re buying these young potential players. If Lukaku had the choice to play at Arsenal or Chelsea, he will pick Chelsea every day of the week.”
