Manchester United have succeeded in the “impossible mission” – to steal Romelu Lukaku from Everton before Chelsea’s nose.
Jose Mourinho earned a thrill after a Belgian international who publicly declared he wanted to get back to Stamford Bridge, but changed his stance after the passion for London’s “blue” in the past thirty days.
Although previously speculated for a sum of over £ 100 million, BBC reported this morning that Everton accepted the £ 75m offer of “Red Devils”. The Belgian also arranged the personal details, so the transfer will be completed no later than tomorrow, so that Lukaku can travel with the team on a US tour, which “the devils” leave on Sunday.
There is no doubt that Lukaku, who scored 25 goals in the Premier League last season, will be a huge boost for United, especially in a situation when Old Trafford left Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer.
Pending as part of the “good relationship” between Everton and Manchester United, soon after the transfer of Wayne Rooney to Goodison Park, after the announcement that the ex-captain would not travel with the United team in the United States at all.
