Man Utd transfer news LIVE: Corentin Tolisso BOOST, Griezmann eyed in shock summer bid, United want to KEEP Martial


    Rio Ferdinand also warned United fans that Romelu Lukaku will be desperate to prove his worth in the Premier League after his Manchester United exit with the striker set to join Chelsea.

    Ferdinand said on his FIVE YouTube channel: “He’s got a whole stadium full at Manchester United who doubted him, all the fanbase 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.”

    Ferdinand went on to say: “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.

    “If he gets the chances that Timo Werner got last year, he bangs 30-35 goals, it’s as simple as that.

    “I think Werner will still be vital for them with how he runs off the ball and creates space.

    “Chelsea have heavy artillery up front now, a real mix of talent, all different type of players, a real good blend.

    “Lukaku going there makes them an absolute threat to win the title. They could win it.”
