Manchester United have officially signed Everton striker Romelu Lukaku on a five-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year. The Belgian striker becomes the Premier League’s second most expensive player ever.

He scored 25 Premier League goals last season, and will join the team in LA ahead of pre-season training.

Jose Mourinho 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.”

Romelu Lukaku said:

“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.”
