Romelu Lukaku is still considered to be the most influential signing of the summer despite Cristiano Ronaldo re-joining Manchester United.
This is according to former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton.
He told Daily Mail: “The return of Cristiano Ronaldo is great for Manchester United in a commercial sense. I’m sure Ed Woodward is ecstatic at the prospect of the opportunities this brings.
“It’s romantic as hell for him to be returning to Old Trafford at the tail end of his career. But for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the most important question is this: is he the man to win United the Premier League?
“My answer to that is: I’m not so sure. Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool are still the teams to beat in my estimation. Juventus signed Ronaldo because they wanted to win, remember.
“They finished fourth in Serie A last season, and couldn’t get beyond the Champions League’s round of 16 in his two years there. On Friday afternoon, before the Ronaldo news broke, I considered Romelu Lukaku to be the most influential signing of the summer and I still do.”
