Paul Pogba has explained the key role he played in helping Manchester United get Romleu Lukaku over Chelsea this summer.
United confirmed the signing on the 24-year-old Belgian this afternoon, after a tussle with the Blues to grab the Everton man.
Pogba had previously put a video on Instagram of the moment Lukaku told him that he was going to join him at Old Trafford, with the hashtag #AgentP.
And now he has explained what role he played to make sure that Lukaku made the move to Manchester over west London while they holidayed together in Los Angeles.
Pogba told ESPN: “It was just luck that I was in Manchester United, but obviously for me, if I can push, I will push. But it’s not my decision, by the way.
“It’s not my decision. It’s the manager’s decision, all the technical staff. Obviously, I think the players, we’re all happy that he’s playing for United, and we’re very happy for that.
“His [Lukaku’s] power. He’s too powerful this guy, it’s not normal. I heard when he was 2 he could eat two Big Macs.
“Yeah, we knew it would happen one day [they would play together]. One day. I don’t know when and where, and now it’s happening, so I’m very happy for that.”
