Romelu Lukaku has completed a medical ahead of a much anticipated move to Manchester United, who have agreed a fee with Everton for the Belgian striker.

The deal, which is subject to a medical and personal terms, is worth £75m, and includes £15m in add-ons.

United’s offer was matched by Chelsea, but it appears to late as the Blues seem set to miss out on resigning their former player.

Lukaku was sold to Everton in 2014 for £28m by current United boss, José Mourinho, who was then in his second spell at Stamford Bridge.

The Red Devils are keen to conclude a deal for the Belgium international, just in time for their departure for pre-season tour of the US on Sunday.

Lukaku confirms he’s completed a medical.

Lukaku has been holidaying in the US, venue of his medical, and training with soon to be team mate and United midfielder, Paul Pogba.

The 24-year-old, who scored 25 goals in the premier league for Everton last season, was 18 years old when he arrived England from Anderlecht for £18m six years ago.

He made just one Premier League start for the Blues, spending time on loan at West Bromwich Albion and Everton before sealing a permanent move to Goodison Park.

Lukaku turned down the most lucrative contract offer in Everton’s history in March, thought to be worth £140k per week, as per the BBC.
