If Sky Sports is to be believed, Manchester United have allegedly agreed terms with Everton for acquiring the services of Romelu Lukaku, after letting their Swedish goal scoring machine Zlatan leave.
The Manchester based club is said to be ready to pay £75million for the highly rated Belgium striker.
Lukaku has been in great demand, with Chelsea eager to bring him back to Stamford Bridge, after selling him for 28 million to Everton in 2014.
The deal including Lukaku could involve two way movement, as out-of-favor Manchester United forward could return to his boyhood club Everton to continue his playing days.
Mourinho is said to have left the pursuit of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata due to the incoming Lukaku.
Real Madrid had rejected Manchester United’s previous bids to land Morata, and it seems Chelsea will be looking to buy Morata now that their preferred striker is out of the market.
However, nothing is final in the Lukaku saga, as previous reports suggested that Lukaku to Chelsea is final, after spotting him playing in a field which had Chelsea hoardings.
Lukaku had to take to Twitter to calm both the Chelsea and Everton fans a couple of days after that report floated.

Lukaku would fit perfectly in Mourinho’s plan, as he plans to strengthen his squad for their European test.

After letting go of ex-captain Wayne Rooney and Zlatan Ibramovic after the 2016-17 season, a man like Lukaku could easily fill those boots.
Lukaku was the second highest scorer in the league last season, beating the likes of Diego Costa, Alexis Sanchez and Dele Alli.
Only Tottenham striker Harry Kane scored more goals than him.
If Lukaku ends up at the Theatre of Dreams, it surely would be an upgrade for him, as he will finally get to experience proper Champions League game time.
But now, senior analysts from Sky Sports are reporting that Everton may not sell Lukakau to United after all. Conflicting reports are emerging out of Goodison, as some claim that Everton want a higher price.
There are also some reports saying that this rumour is completely false.
It’s time to wait and watch, as of now.
