Former Manchester United centre-back, Rio Ferdinand, has revealed that Romelu Lukaku told him that he was 'hungry' ahead of his transfer move to Chelsea from Inter Milan.
Lukaku has flown to London to complete his £97.5million move to Chelsea from Inter after undergoing the first part of his medical in Milan on Monday.
Speaking on the development, Ferdinand said on the FIVE YouTube channel: "I have spoken to him [Romelu Lukaku] recently and he's a hungry man.
"He has not confirmed to me that he is signing for Chelsea, but he just said this season, he is hungry.
"I just think this guy, a lot of greatness comes through having fuel and what I mean by that is having doubters and wanting to prove them wrong.
"He has got a whole stadium full at Manchester United who doubted him, all the fan base at Old Trafford doubted him. A lot of people were not too dissatisfied when he left.
"He will be sitting there and looking in the diary to see when that Old Trafford game is and he will want to unload."
