Holy moly, it’s all hotting up on the Romelu Lukaku front this morning.

As was speculated, Manchester United have reportedly gone and struck a deal to sign Romelu Lukaku from right underneath Chelsea’s metaphorical nose.

According to a breaking bulletin from the Telegraph’s James Ducker, United have agreed a fee of £75million with Everton, with an expedited deal set to go through before the end of the week…

The prospective transfer would see Jose Mourinho paying £75million for a player he discarded for £24million just three summers ago (the tried and true Nemanja Matic model), while Everton will receive Wayne Rooney into the bargain. Cripes!

Meanwhile, at Stamford Bridge…

The upshot of United honing in on Lukaku is that the club have now officially ended their interest in signing Real Madrid fringe forward Alvaro Morata, who may well end up signing for Chelsea instead.

It’s all conjecture as yet, but things might be about to get interesting.

    Well, I think it’s a good signing. I don’t know if Morata would be better, but Lukaku is a proven goalscorer. I don’t see him not scoring at least 20 goals per season.

    About the fee, very high, but that’s absolutely no problem for United, I think.
