The 21-year-old sealed his £28million move to Goodison Park this week, after Chelsea decided to let him leave on a permanent deal - returning to the club where he excelled on loan last season.

And Lukaku admits the chance to work with Roberto Martinez was a huge lure for him.

“For me it’s easy. I just want to improve and get better year after year," he said.

“I’m not saying Chelsea are not a good team but I needed to be in a place where it felt right.

“It almost feels that I belong here. That’s why I came back. I have a very good relationship with the players and the staff.

“Roberto Martinez has been very influential. He’s someone who knows football. Someone I can develop under as a player.

“He makes us all better as a team. I want to become one of the best and he wants to make our team one of the best teams in England.”

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
