Romelu Lukaku touch goes viral…
For so long this summer, it looked likely that Romelu Lukaku would return to Chelsea.
As is now well known, Manchester United hijacked the move for Lukaku and presented their new signing in LA on Monday.
Lukaku takes over the striker role from Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Chelsea and said all the right things in his first interviews.
Most notably that Manchester United are the “biggest club in the world”.
With Chelsea fans!
We can now expect for much of the coming season, for Chelsea fans to forensically analyse every touch by Lukaku and every goal and miss.
Once Chelsea sign a striker, perhaps Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, Alvaro Morata or Andrea Belotti, they will also be compared with the big Belgian striker.
And, the Chelsea jokes have already started during Manchester United’s tour of the USA.
Romelu Lukaku’s first touch for Manchester United…
Once Manchester United had won the race for Lukaku, plenty of Chelsea fans joked about Lukaku’s “poor first touch”.
Considering how many goals Lukaku scored for Everton in recent seasons, it seems unlikely that his first touch is that bad.
Nevertheless, a clip has gone viral from a passing session on Manchester United’s tour, which features a horrendous touch from Lukaku that turns into a pass.
Watch the Lukaku clip below and the ensuing jokes – expect plenty more in 2017/2018…

AS IF in Lukaku's first training session he couldn't trap the ball; his first touch was shit.
Not like Everton fans have been saying that 👀

– Lukaku first touch problem is actually a thing. One would think he should be past this thing by now.

Honestly if Lukaku's goals help us to win silverware next season the quite frankly he can have the worst first touch of any player ever.
