‘Hungry’ Lukaku didn’t tell me he’ll sign for Chelsea – Rio Ferdinand
Former England and Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has revealed what Romelu Lukaku told him ahead of his return to Chelsea.
Lukaku, who plies his trade with Inter Milan, is expected to return to Chelsea.
However, Ferdinand disclosed that Lukaku never told him he would sign for Chelsea.
The Manchester United legend said Lukaku told him that he is ‘hungry’ ahead of the much-anticipated transfer to Chelsea.
Speaking with the FIVE YouTube channel, Ferdinand said: “I have spoken to Romelu Lukaku recently and he’s a hungry man.
“He has not confirmed to me that he is signing for Chelsea, but he just said this season, he is hungry.
“I just think this guy, a lot of greatness comes through having fuel and what I mean by that is having doubters and wanting to prove them wrong.”
