Romelu Lukaku responds to comparisons between him and Cristiano Ronaldo

Ex-Man United striker Romelu Lukaku has responded to comparisons between himself and Ronaldo in humble fashion by stating: “Don’t ever compare me to Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Cristiano Ronaldo is, for me, in the top three best players in the history of football.

“I’m not going to rank him from first to third but he’s in there.”

The two Premier League new boys battled it out in Serie A last season for Inter Milan and Juventus respectively, with Ronaldo winning the golden boot but Lukaku’s Inter winning the Scudetto.

Both have returned to the Premier League this summer in two of the most high profile transfers of recent years and both of their new clubs will surely be able to bank on them scoring a fair few goals.

It will be fascinating to watch the two battle it out again for both Chelsea and Man United and see who comes out on top in the Prem.
