Manchester United have agreed a fee of around £75m with Everton for striker Romelu Lukaku.
Yes, don’t shake your head. You read it right. Manchester United have been chasing Real Madrid’s want-away Alvaro Morata this summer but it seems like they have hijacked Lukaku’s move to Chelsea.
According to BBC and Sky Sports, Manchester United have reached an agreement for £75m rated Everton forward, Romelu Lukaku.

The 24-year-old Belgium international scored 25 Premier League goals last season.
It is being said that he was on a list of forward options Mourinho gave to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward before the end of last season.

Mino Raiola who looks after 3 of the previous summer’s signings of Manchester United-Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, is also the agent of Lukaku.
Rumors of Lukaku escalated when Lukaku was spotted with Manchester United’s record signing Paul Pogba in Los Angeles, California recently.
Lukaku’s deal might end United’s chase for Alvaro Morata as they already have 2 bids rejected for the Real Madrid star.
Record Manchester United goalscorer Wayne Rooney is expected to head in the opposite direction, with the 31-year-old returning to Goodison Park as part of a possible swap deal.
