Everton have set a £100million transfer tag on Manchester United target, Romelu Lukaku, according to reports.
The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Goodison Park this summer, with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United are tipped to move for the player.
However, it is understood that United have moved ahead of the Blues in the pursuit of Lukaku, as Jose Mourinho look to add firepower to his attack, with reports that the Portuguese boss is hoping to sign the Belgian forward as an ideal replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is recuperating from a cruciate ligament injury.
Romelu Lukaku has hinted that he wants to leave Everton this summer, after Toffees boss Ronald Koeman confirmed that the striker has refused to sign a new deal with the club.
The 23-year-old has been tipped to become of the best strikers in the Premier League due to his goal-scoring prowess in recent seasons although, he has also been criticised for his below par performances against big teams.
But United will have to stump up £100million to sign Lukaku despite his agent, Mino Raiola’s comments that the player is keen on moving away from the Goodison Park.
