The Manica Post - - Front Page -

MANCH­ESTER United are near­ing a £75mil­lion fee for Romelu Lukaku and ex­pect to wrap up a deal in time for the Ever­ton striker to join them on their US tour. United man­ager Jose Mour­inho has moved quickly to hi­jack Chelsea’s pur­suit of Lukaku and has now aborted his pur­suit of Real Madrid’s Al­varo Mo­rata. Lukaku’s move is not linked to that of Wayne Rooney, but United will waive any trans­fer fee to help fa­cil­i­tate a deal as their cap­tain nears a re­turn to Ever­ton in a sep­a­rate agree­ment. Chelsea were thought to be front of the queue to sign Lukaku, who scored 26 goals last sea­son, but he is now head­ing for Old Traf­ford.

Lukaku’s move is not linked to that of Wayne Rooney, but United will waive any trans­fer fee to help fa­cil­i­tate a deal as their cap­tain nears a re­turn to Ever­ton in a sep­a­rate agree­ment.

Chelsea were thought to be front of the queue to sign Lukaku, who scored 26 goals last sea­son, but he is now head­ing for Old Traf­ford.

Mour­inho is bring­ing the 24-yearold for­ward in to re­place Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic and will now ditch the chase of Mo­rata hav­ing se­cured his top tar­get.

Lukaku was sold by Mour­inho, who was then Chelsea man­ager, to Ever­ton three years ago but is keen to work again with the Bel­gium in­ter­na­tional. - Daily Mail
