Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has decided to take legal action against Everton co-owner Farhad Moshiri for the comments that he chose to make on him – according to reports.

Lukaku was scheduled to head back to Chelsea after rejecting a new deal at Everton but the Belgian International finally went ahead and joined Manchester United for a fee of 75 million pounds.

According to the BBC, Romelu Lukaku has decided to take legal advice against the comment of Moshiri claiming that a voodoo message made him chose Chelsea over Everton.

While speaking to the shareholders at the AGM, Farhad Moshiri said: ‘We offered him a better deal than Chelsea and his agent came to Finch Farm to sign the contract,

‘The player was on a pilgrimage in Africa or somewhere and he had a voodoo and he got the message to sign for Chelsea.’

Reportedly, Romelu Lukaku has been left infuriated with the comment and is now in the process of seeking legal advice.

The Belgian’s representative told BBC: ‘Romelu’s decision had nothing to do with voodoo.

‘He distances himself from these beliefs and this statement and will now see what judicial steps can be taken in relation to them. Romelu is very Catholic and voodoo is not part of his life or his beliefs.

‘He simply had no faith in Everton and no confidence in Mr Moshiri’s project. That is why he did not want to sign on any condition. He wanted to make the next step in his career and wanted the security to be able to leave.’
