Premier League giants Manchester United have finally confirmed the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Everton.
The deal, reported to be worth £75m, was announced on the official United website on Monday.
"Manchester United is delighted to announce the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Everton on a five-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year," United stated.
"The 24-year-old Belgian international striker will join the team in LA ahead of pre-season training."
United manager 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."
Lukaku added: "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."Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
