Manchester United striker RomeluLukaku has rejected the comparison to former Chelsea talisman Didier Drogba.

The Belgian strayed away from comparisons to the former Jose Mourinho star at the Stamford Bridge. Many alluded that the Portuguese manager wanted Lukaku for sharing similar qualities with the Ivorian who helped Mourinho succeed at Chelsea.

“I am different,” Lukalu emphasized.

“Drogba is more of a target man, I am a player that has the ball into feet, who runs in behind. There are physical similarities but we are totally different players,” the former Toffees striker explained.

Lukaku is expected to lead the attack line at Old Trafford while Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial support him. There are reports that the deal for Ivan Perisic could be completed in the following days. The Croatian is believed to be keen on the deal but his employers Inter Milan want him to remain at the Italian capital.

Rashford has promised to partner very well with Lukaku so the club could benefit with the goals. The Three Lions star was the lead striker following the injury to Zlatan Ibrahimovic towards the end of the last term. He is set to feature behind Lukaku or on the wings this term. Since he got his opportunity under Louis van Gaal last two seasons, the youngster has not looked back.

Lukaku admits that there is so much required of him at the club but adds that the extra pressure informed his decision in the first place. He says there is always room for improvement and that he is far from where he aims. He promised to develop as a Red Devils star and “create [his] history.”
