ROM FEE AGREED Manchester United agree £75million fee for Romelu Lukaku as Jose Mourinho finally looks set to land a new striker

MANCHESTER UNITED have agreed a £75million fee for Romelu Lukaku as Jose Mourinho finally looks set to land a top goalscorer.

The Belgian looks set to leave Everton with Wayne Rooney heading in the opposite direction.


A deal for Lukaku is not contingent on Rooney heading to Everton, but as SunSport revealed, the former Toffees striker is set to seal a move back to his boyhood club.

According to BBC Sport, the two clubs have agreed a fee in the region of £75m for the striker, with United able to offer the 24-year-old Champions League football next season.

Ed Woodward is also understood to have ended the Red Devils’ interest in taking Alvaro Morata to Old Trafford.

After protracted talks over the back-up Real Madrid forward, Woodward has told the Bernabeu hierarchy negotiations are dead in the water.

Mino Raiola is Lukaku’s agent – and he represented deals for Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who all joined United last summer.

Pogba moved for a world record £89m and the fee for Lukaku will be in the top five all-time most expensive switches.
