REVEALED: Man Utd coaching staff's instant reaction upon Lukaku arrival

Manchester United coaching staff were quickly won over by Romelu Lukaku in preseason.

Lukaku arrived in the summer from Everton.

Duncan Castles, of the Daily Record, told the Transfer Window Podcast: “I made a point of asking Mourinho's guys just after they got him in America and had him for a few weeks training there what the difference was between the Lukaku they'd worked with at Chelsea.

“They were very clear he was a completely changed individual.

“Much more mature. They thought a better, more mature footballer.

“The product they got on the training field after purchasing him for £75m was better than they expected."
