Paul Pogba has revealed how he convinced Romelu Lukaku to join Manchester United earlier in the summer.
Lukaku looked set to return to Chelsea, only for Jose Mourinho to swoop in and secure a £75million deal.
Pogba has been close friends with the 24-year-old for many years and has lifted the lid on his role in convincing him to sign for the Red Devils.
“I had been preparing for this – it was long work,” Pogba said on Copa 90’s FIFA and Chill show.
“I took him to dinner and I talked to him [about Manchester United] .
“I had to work for it but the finale is that he’s here, he’s here with us and he’s banging in the goals.
“He’s a player who knows the Premier League well and can help us a lot.”
