Chelsea have not given up hope of signing Romelu Lukaku

Posted July 07, 2017

The Belgium worldwide scored 25 goals and registered six assists in the Premier League for the Merseyside club, and his form for Ronald Koeman's side has seen him attract interest from the Red Devils and Chelsea.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku will undergo his Manchester United medical in Los Angeles, where he is now on vacation, and finalize his transfer.

ROMELU LUKAKU went AWOL from Everton duties last night to have his Manchester United medical in LA.

It had been thought Lukaku would return to his former club Chelsea, who he joined from Anderlecht in 2011. United, however, are still confident of the deal going through.

The deal would also see Everton make a tidy profit on the £28m they spent on Lukaku when then Chelsea manager Mourinho, now the United handler, sold him in 2014 after a successful loan spell. In 133 matches, Lukaku has scored 71 goals.

You can still back a team to land Lukaku with United ranked at 1/5 with SkyBet, whilst Chelsea are 100/30.

Paul Pogba reportedly played a huge role in recruiting Lukaku to Old Trafford, where the two friends will now meet up in an effort to finish fifth instead of sixth.

"The one thing you would say at times past year with Ibrahimovic - I thought he was absolutely magnificent - but the way that Manchester United played Ibrahimovic found himself quite isolated", added Higginbotham.

"If he was to do that for Manchester United, given Manchester United drew so many games against weaker opponents a year ago, I don't think you'd find many complaints", he continued.

Personal terms are yet to be discussed with the player who helped Roma to a second place finish last season and guided his country Germany to the Confederations Cup win last month.
