Lukaku reveals major reason he chose Man Utd over Chelsea

He says United's quick business saved them almost £75m on Lukaku alone, explaining: "I think we were very clever".

United paid Everton £75m for Lukaku in early July, weeks before PSG smashed the world transfer record with their £198m buy of Barcelona's Neymar.

Mata was initially brought over to Manchester United in David Moyes short tenure, famously landing at the club in a helicopter during the January transfer window.

And even though the Spaniard has been impressed with the arrivals of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof this summer, he accepts they might need a slice of fortune to make it to Kiev in May. I don't like to sleep on a slow watch, a slow timing, and let it go.

"We thought that something could happen that could change the market forever".

Jose Mourinho has suggested that managers who leave a club "in conditions for failure" are more damaging than short-term bosses.

'N. Korea to Stockpile 1Mn Tons of Oil in Preparation of Sanctions'
The UNSC on Tuesday strongly condemned North Korea's firing of the ballistic missile, calling it an "outrageous" threat. Questions remain over whether Pyongyang has miniaturized its weapons and whether it has a working hydrogen bomb.

In an exclusive interview with HITC Sport, former Liverpool and Newcastle United star Barnes, speaking on behalf of Bonus Code Bets, said when asked for his top-four predictions: "I think the top four will be Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool".

"I personally think so". Matic would have been £60 million or £70 million.

"If the biggest transfer in history had still been Paul Pogba, I think Philippe Coutinho would now be in Barcelona at £101m". Now the players of £20m became £40m, the players of £40m became £60m and everything changed.

"I didn't fancy Liverpool before the season started, but they've made some decent buys and kept [Philippe] Coutinho which is a boost for them", Giggs told ESPN FC.

Argentina legend Hernan Crespo is the player closest to Ibrahimovic's record with CL goals for five different clubs, while Nicolas Anelka, Arjen Robben, Fernando Morientes and Samuel Eto'o are all on four. "That is not crucial but it is important".
