Transfer Talk: Pochettino keen on Man Utd move

Transfer Talk

Romelu Lukaku targets successful partnership with Marcus Rashford

Romelu Lukaku says he has already developed a "special" relationship with new Manchester United teammate Marcus Rashford.

Lukaku scored twice on his Premier League debut in a 4-0 win against West Ham following a £75 million move from Everton this summer, and the Belgium international insists they are already on the same wavelength.

He told MUTV: "With me and Marcus, there's something special. Hopefully we can produce even more than we did today.

"We clicked from the first day that I arrived, and I knew that he would help me settle in at the club.

"I knew Jesse [Lingard] from before, and Paul, they're probably my closest friends in the dressing room, but I get on with everybody in the team."

Romelu Lukaku scored two goals against West Ham on his home debut for Manchester United.

Lukaku would have capped his home debut with a hat trick but for Pablo Zabaleta's block in the second half.

He would have been the first United player to score a hat trick on the opening day of the season since Lou Macari in a 4-1 win at Birmingham in 1977.

Lukaku added: "I wish it was three goals and a hat trick to be fair. I was thinking about. I'm a striker so I'm always thinking about scoring goals.

"Strikers are there to score goals and, if you stick to your job, you're going to do well. But, at the end, of the day I want to win and the team wants to win. So I'm really happy that everybody performed well and that we've set a high standard."
