Manchester United have completed the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Everton.

The 24-year-old striker joins United from Everton for an initial £75m, after penning down a five-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year. The Belgian international will join the team in LA ahead of pre-season training.

Jose Mourinho, who sold the striker at Chelsea, said: “Romelu is a natural fit for Manchester United. He is a big personality and a big player.

“It is only natural that he wants to develop his career at the biggest club. He will be a great addition to the group and I know they will make him very welcome. I am really looking forward to working with him again.”



The striker also spoke to the club’s official website, and stated: “I would like to start by thanking Everton and the fans for the last four wonderful seasons, I have made some special friends and we have shared some amazing moments.

“However, when Manchester United and Jose Mourinho come knocking at the door it is an opportunity of a lifetime and one that I could not turn down.

“You could see the fight, determination and the spirit in this team during the Europa League final and I want to become a part of that. I cannot wait to run out at Old Trafford in front of 75,000 fans but before that pre-season is where the hard work starts and I am looking forward to that first training session.”
