However, United pounced as progress towards a deal between Chelsea and Everton stalled, with the Red Devils swiftly agreeing a £75m fee ahead of the Blues. The number is also the highest-ever received for an outbound player, surpassing John Stones' move to Manchester City.

Lukaku has scored 85 goals in five full seasons in the Premier League, becoming one of only five players in Premier League history to hit 50 goals before the age of 23.

The former Manchester United captain has returned to Merseyside after 13 years with United and still feels he has a lot to offer at the age of 31.

It is unknown whether Lukaku will play in United's match against the LA Galaxy Friday, so next Monday he could make his debut against RSL. It is only natural that he wants to develop his career at the biggest club.

"To now try and lead the boys and look after the young boys, to try and guide them in some way, is a nice thing to be".

"He's got to pull his finger out a little bit more - he's got to do more on the defensive side of his game to appease Jose Mourinho", Andy commented, referring to Martial.

Rooney's arrival will shortly be followed by the departure of fellow striker Romelu Lukaku in the opposite direction.

Because, Lacazette is not physically right for the Premier League and is not a big-game player. I came to this club as a footballer and I am now a huge fan. "Last year, when he signed for United, to have witnessed that, it really triggered something in my brain in that, if the chance would occur one day, I wouldn't say no".

He is looking forward to playing in front of 75,000 fans each week and creating memories with them.

But Manchester United made the first move for his services this summer and warded off Chelsea's desperate attempts to bring him back to the club.

Jose Mourinho who sold Lukaku to Everton in his last few years as Chelsea manager was full of praise for the Belgian attacker.

He added: 'I think Mourinho will find a way to get the best out of Lukaku, as Lukaku is a very, very good centre-forward.
