Manchester United Agreed A £75m Fee With Everton To Sign Romelu Lukaku

Lukaku's future at Goodison Park has been in doubt since he rejected a lucrative new contract offer back in March and said during duty with the Belgium national team that he knew where his future would be.

Everton sources have told Sky Sports News HQ that no deal has yet been agreed for the 24-year-old.

Lukaku has also been a target for Chelsea this summer but United boss Jose Mourinho has also been keen to add a new high-profile striker to his squad after losing Zlatan Ibrahimovic to injury.

United had been in talks with Real Madrid over a possible deal for Alvaro Morata and saw a number of offers rejected.

But Sky Sports News HQ understands their interest in bringing Morata to Old Trafford has now come to an end.

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.

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

Sky sources also understand the Lukaku deal is not linked to one that 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 potential return to Merseyside.
