Manchester united have had a £75m fee agreed with Everton for the services of Romelu Lukaku according to Sky sources.
Sources in Everton have affirmed that the deal is still far from being concluded but the Manchester club are confident that it will be completed soon.
The Red Devils were thought to be on the verge of signing Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata for a few days now, but it has been confirmed that they have now abandoned that pursuit.
Lukaku scored 25 Premier League goals for Everton last season, and was on the radar of United’s rivals Chelsea for months as the player was tipped for a return to Stamford Bridge where he had played previously.
Sky sources understand that Everton will be eager to sell to Manchester united as a make shift in the deal to sign Wayne Rooney from Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho would want the deal concluded in time to have the Belgian International with the squad in pre season.
