Romelu Lukaku says he "didn't have to think twice" about joining Manchester United once they made an offer for him.

The striker has completed a medical on Saturday after United confirmed they had reached an agreement with Everton to sign him for £75 million.

Lukaku also had the option of returning to Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea matching United's offer, but the 24-year-old said the chance to play at Old Trafford had been a goal of his since childhood.

"It's the biggest club in the world. It's a club that's hungry to win the league again, to be dominant in the world again and the sort of opportunity I always wanted since a child," he told ESPN.

"When they came calling I didn't have to think twice. So I'm really delighted to hopefully be part of their history.

"Who would say no to the biggest club in the world? The best stadium in England, the best fans. It's a perfect opportunity. I always said I want to play for a team that's challenging for every trophy that there is.

"I think Manchester United wants to be the dominant force and if you look at the history it says enough. To become part of a club like them is something I really wanted and I'm thankful for the opportunity they gave me and now it's time to work harder than I ever did before and I'm willing to do it."
