Manchester United have agreed a £75m fee with Everton for striker Romelu Lukaku, according to widespread reports.

Antonio Conte has reportedly told Chelsea’s board to pay whatever it takes to land Lukaku but United look to have stolen a march on their Premier League rivals.

The 24-year-old appeared set to rejoin former club Chelsea this summer, but it is understood he is now on the verge of linking up with the manager that sold him in 2014.

United boss Jose Mourinho has been desperate to bring in a striker this summer and a move for Lukaku is now close, having agreed a fee in the region of £75million with Everton.
