The Belgian’s move to the Red Devils was officially completed on Monday after the club announced over the weekend that an agreement with Everton had been reached.  

Mourinho has now talked about United’s capture of the 24-year-old for the first time, admitting that he was thrilled to be reunited with his former Chelsea forward.

“Romelu is a natural fit for Manchester United,” he told United’s official website.

“He is a big personality and a big player. It is only natural that he wants to develop his career at the biggest club.

“He will be a great addition to the group and I know they will make him very welcome. I am really looking forward to working with him again.”
