share on:

Manchester United have confirmed they have signed Romelu Lukaku on a five-year deal from Everton, with an option to extend for a further year.

The deal for the 24-year-old Belgium international is believed to include £15m in add-ons.

“Romelu is a natural fit for Manchester United. He is a big personality and a big player,” said boss Jose Mourinho.

“It is only natural that he wants to develop his career at the biggest club.

“He will be a great addition to the group. I am really looking forward to working with him again.”

Romelu Lukaku, whose contract includes an option for a sixth year, said:

“I would like to start by thanking Everton and the fans for the last four wonderful seasons, I have made some special friends and we have shared some amazing moments. However, when Manchester United and Jose Mourinho come knocking at the door it is an opportunity of a lifetime and one that I could not turn down.

“You could see the fight, determination and the spirit in this team during the Europa League final and I want to become a part of that. I cannot wait to run out at Old Trafford in front of 75,000 fans but before that pre-season is where the hard work starts and I am looking forward to that first training session.
