Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United makes Manchester United fans dream, but there is one highlighting another return to English football: Romelu Lukaku.
After two seasons in Italy with Inter Milan, the Belgian striker signed with Chelsea for around €115 million, returning to a club he had previously represented without much success.
For Stan Collymore, the former England striker who has represented clubs such as Nottingham Forest, Liverpool and Aston Villa, “there is no other player who is more important in the Premier League for his team than Lukaku”.
Manchester United fans point to Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford and say he will be more important than Lukaku at Chelsea. If Lukaku loses Lukaku in 10 matches, it will have a huge impact on his title ambitions or even his chance of finishing in the top four. Manchester United have Edinson Cavani, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes to score in a period when Ronaldo could be ruled out. Moreover, the 36-year-old Ronaldo is less predictable than in previous years”, he explained in his regular opinion column in the British newspaper Mirror.
