Manchester United and Everton agree £75m fee for Romelu Lukaku

Everton have accepted a £75m bid from Manchester United for Romelu Lukaku.

Belgium international Lukaku had been linked with a move back to Chelsea this summer but it appears the 24-year-old will instead become a high-profile Jose Mourinho signing.

Mourinho had been looking for a replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and talks had been held with Real Madrid over a possible deal for Alvaro Morata.

Lukaku, who scored 25 Premier League goals last season, is expected to have a medical later this week with the hope that he can join United for their tour of the United States next week.

United return to training on Saturday before flying off to Los Angeles on Sunday.

According to Sky sources  the Lukaku deal is not linked to one which could see Wayne Rooney head in the opposite direction, moving back to Goodison Park and re-joining a club he left back in 2004 as a teenager.

Negotiations are continuing between the clubs and Rooney’s representatives over his return to Merseyside.
