​Fowler confused over Lukaku decision to join Man Utd

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler says he was left baffled by Romelu Lukaku's decision to join Manchester United.

The Belgian, who was also strongly linked with a move to his former club Chelsea, completed a reported £90m move from Everton to United last week.

Fowler writes in his column for the Mirror: "I have to admit I'm baffled by Romelu Lukaku's decision to join Manchester United.

"It's a funny one, why would he want to go and play for a manager who has already twice deemed him not good enough, which is exactly what Jose Mourinho has done, whatever way he wraps it up.

"Ok, I get he'll say he's improved, I get he is no doubt a better player, but really? It's a strange one for me, especially as this deal looks suspiciously like it is a last-minute deal."
