Wayne Rooney believes Romelu Lukaku is the “perfect player” for Manchester United after the former England captain’s departure this summer.
Lukaku has made an immediate impact at Old Trafford following his £90m move from Everton in July.
The Belgian international has scored three goals in United’s opening three Premier League games, and former United striker Rooney is convinced the team is in great hands following the 24-year old’s arrival.
“For that United side, he is the perfect player,” Rooney said in an exclusive interview with talkSPORT. “He is powerful, quick and strong and he scores goals, so certainly will improve that team.”
