Lukaku on the move to Old Trafford for £75 million

Jul 07, 2017, 00:03

The striker was on a list of forward options Mourinho gave to United's executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, before the end of last season.

(Getty Images) Manchester United have pulled out of talks to sign Alvaro Morata.

If that does indeed happen, United will have the world's most expensive striker (Lukaku), most expensive player (Pogba) and most expensive teenager (Martial).

Lukaku made two Premier League starts in the 2013-14 season before Mourinho sent him on loan to Everton, the club he sold Lukaku to the following season for 28 million GBP.

Romelu Lukaku is heavily linked with a move away from Everton so should the club consider Watford's Troy Deeney as a replacement?

With the news Utd had ended their interest in Morata, speculation began to build over whether Chelsea and Antonio Conte would reignite their interest in the former Juventus frontman.

Now it looks like a bidding war will kick off between United and Chelsea, who let Lukaku leave for a club record fee of £28million in 2014.

Raiola has advised Lukaku to join United ahead of his former club and if the price is right from United, they could land the striker they so badly need.

Lukaku told reporters last month that he is in complete control over his future, insisting that he "will take the decisions" regarding his next destination.

Manchester United came close to this valuation, offering 75 million euros last night, which was rejected. Indeed, they have noted Everton's denial that a deal has been struck with interest.

Both the Mirror and The Times, though, claim United are offering Rooney as a makeweight to Everton in a bid to beat Chelsea to the signature of Lukaku.

He became just the fourth player in Premier League history to score 80 goals before age 24, joining current teammate Wayne Rooney (who, ironically, may be headed to Everton now that he's getting limited field time for United).
