Paul Pogba is "very happy" to have Romelu Lukaku as a teammate at Manchester United and also praises fellow new arrivals Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof.

Paul Pogba has expressed his delight with having Romelu Lukaku as a teammate at Manchester United.

The pair have been good friends for a number of years prior to Lukaku's move to Old Trafford from Everton this summer.

As well as speaking fondly of the Belgian striker, Pogba has also praised the other new arrivals at United, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof.

"[Lukaku's] had a good pre-season. Scoring goals, that's what we were expecting. [Nemanja] Matic, you can see he's been working hard," Pogba told Sky Sports News.

"He's settled in the team like he was there for the whole of pre-season. We're happy. Victor [Lindelof], too, you can see his quality straight away. We have a very good group.

"We [Lukaku and Pogba] talked about it last season, wondering if one day we would play together and it's happened this season so I'm very happy. We all are. We have a good relationship."

Man United get their Premier League campaign underway on Sunday when they host West Ham United at Old Trafford.
