BBC explain the situation with Romelu Lukaku’s medical with Manchester United

Chief BBC football writer, Simon Stone, has explained the situation with Romelu Lukaku’s medical with Manchester United.

He had been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford over the summer and speculation spiralled after reports claimed he had agreed a £75m fee with Everton to leave.

Although Everton claim a deal has not yet been complete, he has been allowed to stay in the United States and will be able to join the team when they fly out to Los Angeles on Sunday.

Speaking about his potential move, Stone claims it can’t take place until United ask for Everton’s permission.

He scored 25 Premier League goals last season and has been an incredible player for Everton, however, with massive hopes of playing for a Champions League club, it seems like the perfect time to make the switch.

He rejected a new contract offer back in March and although he’s been a target for Chelsea this summer, it seems like Jose Mourinho has snuck in and completed a deal after losing Zlatan Ibrahimovic to injury.

The club has also been in talks over a possible deal for Alvaro Morata and after seeing a number of deals rejected, stepped up his pursuit of the Belgian, who had reportedly always remained a priority target.
