Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has once again explained how midfielder Paul Pogba played a role in his move to the Red Devils – this time it is a different story.

After securing his big-money move to United earlier this month, Lukaku admitted that Pogba influenced his decision to join the Old Trafford club.

The Belgian has now revealed that whenever he and Pogba went out for a meal in England, the France international would drive past United's stadium on purpose as he knew the Belgian was considering leaving Everton.

"I spoke with Paul a lot, obviously," Lukaku told MUTV.

"We spent our holiday together and he said: 'What do you want to do?' I told him that I was thinking a lot about signing for United, something was telling me (to do it).

"I live near Manchester so, when I was coming to the city (centre), I would drive past Old Trafford and ask my mates what they thought.

"Me and Paul, we’d go to the city to have dinner and he'd drive past Old Trafford on purpose!"
