“I’ve spoken to him recently and he’s hungry man,” Rio Ferdinand told his FIVE YouTube channel about Romelu Lukaku. “He hasn’t confirmed to me that he’s signing for Chelsea but he just said this season, he’s hungry.
“I just think this guy, a lot of greatness comes through having fuel and what I mean by that is having doubters and wanting to prove them wrong.
“He’s got a whole stadium full at Manchester United who doubted him, all the fan base at Old Trafford doubted him. A lot of people weren’t too dissatisfied when he left.”
“He will be sitting there and looking in the diary to see when that Old Trafford game is and he will want to unload.
“Romelu Lukaku guarantees you 20 goals, minimum. He guarantees you that. He’s scored goals wherever he’s been, he’s an elite goalscorer, it’s as simple as that.”
Lukaku has remained a figure that divides opinion among the Man United supporters since leaving the club in 2019.
Now, he’s expected to seal his move to Chelsea shortly which means he’ll be back at Old Trafford next May when the Blues are due to visit or the penultimate game of this upcoming Premier League season.
