• Man Utd Make Sensational U-Turn as £75m Lukaku Deal Is Agreed & Morata Pursuit Ends

    News Thu 6 Jul 2017

    ​Manchester United appear to have had a dramatic late change of heart in their pursuit of a new striker this summer, with news emerging from numerous reliable sources – including ​BBC Sport – on Thursday that a £75m deal for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has been agreed.

    ​​United had been expected to soon seal a deal for Real Madrid front-man Alvaro Morata, but after difficulty in negotiating with the European champions, a move for Lukaku, who is proven in the Premier League after 43 goals in the last two seasons, appears to be imminent instead.


    It has been suggested that United have now informed Real that they will no longer be pursuing Morata at all, which is likely to come as a personal blow to the Spaniard.

    ​​Lukaku had been widely tipped to re-join Chelsea. However, suggestions that Antonio Conte wanted other targets instead – ironically Morata – and the presence of close friend Paul Pogba at Old Trafford, with whom he also shares an agent, may have served to change his mind.

    It is believed that United captain Wayne Rooney will form part of the deal, with the 31-year-old returning to Goodison Park where he began his career in such spectacular form.
