"biggest boots EVER"

Juan Mata’s reaction to Romelu Lukaku’s signing was brilliant

The Spanish midfielder was pretty surprised by the size of his new teammate's boots

Juan Mata and Romelu Lukaku are teammates once again. 

The new Manchester United signing has a familiar face in the dressing room in Mata, as the pair previously played together at Chelsea.

(Both were also booted out of Chelsea by Jose Mourinho, but we won’t discuss that for now).

And it looks like their dressing room reunion was a blast, as Mata was reminded just how gigantic Lukaku really is.

The Belgian forward is renowned for his physicality, power and speed, which of course has lead to numerous comparisons to Dider Drogba throughout his career.

And as you’d probably expect, Lukaku’s shoe size is pretty big too, which Mata showed us all via social.

Take a look:

Welcome @rlukaku9 aka biggest boots EVER. 👀😂🔴

A post shared by Juan Mata (@juanmatagarcia) on

Wearing what looks like clown boots, there’s clearly quite a difference between Mata’s size 7.5 feet to Lukaku’s 13.5 boots.

Lukaku seemed to take the joke well, and replied with a laughing and crying emoji.

Standard.

Lukaku appears to be settling in well at United already, having linked up with the Red Devils during their pre-season tour of the United States, and trained with his new team-mates on Monday.
