Respond Rumor Lukaku, Mata: Gol-golnya Can Bring MU League Champion
Juan Mata knows very well that Romelu Lukaku can make many goals. He also believes Manchester United can win the English League thanks to goals from the Belgian striker.
Lukaku is reportedly going to move from Everton to MU. The Red Devils are said to have reached an agreement to redeem it for 75 million pounds, or about Rp 1.3 trillion.

“We played together for Chelsea and he (Lukaku) went through a lot of good seasons over at Everton,” Mata told Marca told Four Four Two.
“He knows the coach (Jose Mourinho) well and can score many goals, which we hope he can continue to do so we can try to win the league,” he added.
MU has been long enough not to win the Premier League. The last time they dominated the league was in 2012/2013. While in last season, MU only finish in sixth rank Premier League standings.
