Romelu Lukaku is now set to join Manchester United. There was a lots of speculations over where Lukaku would play in the next season and after a huge drama he had agreed to join United.

Chelsea was upto him through out the summer transfer window and it was apparently all set for Lukaku to join Chelsea but Manchester United hijacked the deal at the last moment. The talks were there that Lukaku is going to join Chelsea as a direct replacement of Diego Costa and was the primary target of Chelsea in this transfer window. But Chelsea were unwilling to pay the amount Everton claimed for Lukaku. And there came Manchester United who made a bid of 75 million dollars for Lukaku and Everton agreed to sell their player to United.

Two other reasons are also coming in the news over this Belgian forward transfer saga. Firstly Wayne Rooney is now set to join his previous club Everton and it might be the part of the Lukaku deal though the clubs are not confirming it yet. Secondly Lukaku recently had gone to a vacation at Los Angeles ; Paul Pogba was there and they both have a same agent Raiola. So it might also take part over his decision to join United over Chelsea. But whatever may be the cause he will now be seen to play in red shirts next season and is set to undergo a medical in very short time at United.
