Mourinho suggests Chelsea weren't ready to pay £75m for Lukaku

Wayne Rooney and Ademola Lookman during an Everton training session on the eve of their UEFA Europa League group E match against Atalanta at Mapei Stadium

Both fit the identikit of mega-rich, big-name players with high-profile agents and Hollywood-style entourages.

"I don't think it was my influence, no", he told the Telegraph. This defeat for "toffee" was the third in a row, while in none of these matches Everton even scored a goal.

"It looks to me that everything around him is very normal". Hopefully they can turn around their slow start to the season and play well against United. You wouldn't put me on the wing and I think it is the same with him. What I like to see as well is the innovation.

"And football needs kids, simple kids, who just enjoy what they're doing".

Lukaku, 24, had been widely tipped to return to Chelsea before United paid an initial £75m for the Belgian worldwide.

The 24-year-old's missed transfer almost caused a crisis at Stamford Bridge, with Antonio Conte reportedly very frustrated at the Pensioners' failure to land Lukaku.

Marawi bishop 'happy' over rescue of abducted priest
Edgar Arevalo, Armed Forces of the Philippines Public Affairs Office Chief, said: "We are still validating that information". Photos showing him, a young man and a woman slumped against a wall had also circulated on the Internet.

That the 31-year-old wanted, and asked, to rejoin Everton must have been a relief for Mourinho, who avoided a potentially bitter break-up between his captain and United.

"The selling club decides the amount and the buying club pays or doesn't pay". I think we paid the money that Everton asked for and we paid the player the wages that his agent asked for and we paid the agents the commission that they asked for. "That's how it worked".

The Blues' £60m addition from Real Madrid has scored three times and created two more goals so far in the Premier League.

"It's more hard to win it now because the economic power belongs to everyone", he says.

"It was always hard to win this League because in this country more teams fight for the title".
