Manchester United great Ruud van Nistelrooy thinks his old club have signed Romelu Lukaku at the “perfect time”.
Lukaku has joined on a five-year deal from Everton, and Van Nistelrooy says: “His challenge now is to make another step up and to prove himself at his new club as well.
“It’s different playing at United to playing at Everton, so it will be a mental step, too. The pressure is different so, if he’s capable of dealing with that, I can’t see any problems.
“I also think having better players around him will help and I think he’ll fit in really well. I expect he’ll start hitting his peak now.
“From the club’s point of view, it’s the perfect time to sign him. Over the next six, seven or eight years, United will hopefully have a great centre-forward in Romelu Lukaku.”
