Phil Neville: 'Romelu Lukaku will offer Manchester United something different'

According to the Daily Telegraph, the deal could even be finalised before United fly to Los Angeles on Sunday for the start of their pre-season tour of the US.

Having been jilted at the altar while Lukaku and Man United run off into the sunset, Morata must now return to Real Madrid having prepared himself psychologically for the transfer.

Earlier this week, United pulled out of negotiations with the Spanish champions to sign Alvaro Morata as they refused to lower the striker's €90 million (£79m) asking price.

Lukaku had been in contact with Antonio Conte before United agreed a fee and made it clear he was enthusiastic about a return.

Meanwhile, The Sun claim that Man Utd will offer Matteo Darmian to Inter as part of the deal to sign Ivan Perisic this month.

The latest Premier League news is claiming Manchester United are closing on a record-smashing £100 million move for Everton's and Belgian global Romelu Lukaku.

But along with potential arrivals, Chelsea are also busy completing the exit of Diego Costa, with his former club Atletico Madrid expected to make a bid to re-sign him.

The Belgium worldwide, 24, is one of the most sought-after strikers in the Premier League after scoring 25 top-flight goals for the Toffees last season.

After Zlatan Ibrahimović's contract expired this June, United are in dire need of an elite goalscorer, and Lukaku would quickly solve their problems. And in Lukaku they will get one of the league's most lethal strikers and will only get better in the next few years.

Chelsea were the club which first showed faith in his talent and brought him to the Premier League from Anderlecht as a teenager in 2011.

Mourinho was Chelsea manager when Lukaku was sold to Everton in 2014 after the Belgium global failed to establish a first-team place and had to spend most of his time on loan at West Bromwich Albion and Everton.

The 24-year-old has been holidaying in Los Angeles with close friend and United midfielder Paul Pogba and the Express cite Marca as saying that the striker has now passed his medical tests ahead of his switch to United.
