Former Manchester United and Everton defender Phil Neville seems to have all but confirmed Romelu Lukaku’s transfer to the Old Trafford outfit.
The Belgian striker has been linked with a £75m switch to Manchester United by several major English sources for the past two days, with the 24-year-old currently rumoured to be undergoing his medical examination in the United States.
Numerous reports have further claimed that the Red Devils will officially announce the transfer within the next 48 hours, but Phil Neville has now gone on to ‘confirm’ the transfer himself, via his latest social media post.
The defender, who is a member of United’s famous Class of ’92, uploaded a picture of Lukaku wearing Manchester United’s brand new Adidas shirt, with the caption: ‘Left one great club and joined another @rlukaku9 congratulations!’
Has Phil Neville actually confirmed Lukaku’s mega switch to the Theatre of Dreams before either of the two clubs and the player himself? Or has the Englishman gotten misled with a flawlessly photoshopped picture of the striker? Only time will tell…
