Chelsea fans relieved they didn’t sign Lukaku after latest Man United display

Former Chelsea target Romelu Lukaku struggled for Manchester United in their 2-1 defeat to arch-rivals Manchester City in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford on Sunday, and Blues fans were quick to have their say on his performance.

According to reports in The Telegraph in July, the west London outfit matched the Red Devils’ £75m offer to sign the Belgium international from Everton, but the 24-year-old decided against re-joining his former club in favour of linking up with Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba at United.

The centre-forward has struggled to make an impression in big matches this season however, and while he failed to make an impact in the final third against Pep Guardiola’s men, he also had a hand in their two goals when he failed to clear his lines from two set-pieces.

Chelsea supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on his display, and while many said “so glad we didn’t sign Lukaku”, another simply said “he’s dreadful”.
