Bad news for United and Chelsea as Everton announce a mammoth price for Lukaku

With the aim to get some magic up front, Manchester United are after a certain Everton striker who will cost them a whopping 65 million pounds!

Romelu Lukaku’s scintillating form for Everton has attracted big clubs like Real Madrid, PSG, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United. But in a bid to fend away these bidders, the Goodison Park outfit has put up a huge transfer fee on the Belgian. According to reports in the SUN, Manchester United are the frontrunners in signing the striker and would potentially have to shell out 65 million pounds to get the frontman to Old Trafford.

Lukaku came to Everton following a 28 million pound deal from Chelsea and has been a key man for Everton scoring 19 goals in 28 games played across all formats. The Toffees are presently 11th in the league and would like to hold on to their frontman to improve their chances in the league this season.

The Red Devils on the other hand are finally finding some footing and have slowly risen to the 5th position after the late win against Liverpool.

The Red Devils have had a topsy turvy season with a goal drought suffered by the captain and the conflicts with the tactics of the boss, the new year has seen them standing on some formidable ground and the run for Lukaku shows the much needed ideology of spicing things up that is finally being adopted by the Manchester United camp.

With the rumours about Van Gaal leaving the Red Devils in the summer, a big price tag on Lukaku does not bode well for the Red Devils. But if the Dutchman is to leave who will replace him? Will it be a certain Spaniard who is set to leave the Bavarians in the summer.
