LONDON: Romelu Lukaku officially completed his move from Everton to Manchester United on Monday for a reported fee of £75 million ($97m, 85.5m euros), a record deal between British clubs.
The 24-year-old Belgian international striker — Everton’s record Premier League goalscorer — signed a five-year deal after passing his medical and agreeing personal terms which will see him earn over £200,000 a week.
“Romelu is a natural fit for Manchester United. He is a big personality and a big player. It is only natural that he wants to develop his career at the biggest club,” said United manager Jose Mourinho on the club website.
