New breaking in BBC sport of a 75mill fee agreed for lukaku!

A lot of money (not that fees bother me) but a good signing in my eyes! Scored consistently in the prem for a number of years now.

Hope he can just learn to step it up for the big games.

Delighted, proven 20 plus a season EPL striker. Thought he was Chelsea bound, but happy to have been proven wrong. Being reported now that we've ended our interest in Morata.

Looks like it's happening! Reports that we won't be going in for Morata now. To be fair, Lukaku does seem the better fit for our set up. I would still like us to get a wide player to free up Martial or Rashford as a second striker.

will there be a deal for rooney to go the other way aswell.

{Ed025's Note - yeah..you have to give us £85m if we take him off your hands mate.. :)

Any chance Chelsea will try and hijack us Ed?

{Ed025's Note - its possible i suppose but highly unlikely mate..

8.) 06 Jul 2017
06 Jul 2017 10:45:50
Ed 25 can you see rooney moving to Everton.

{Ed025's Note - yes mate..

9.) 06 Jul 2017
06 Jul 2017 11:01:39
ed025, honestly, are you happy getting rooney back?

{Ed025's Note - myself no angel, but lots of us are so it is what it is mate, time will tell i suppose and koeman is thought of higher than me.. :)

10.) 06 Jul 2017
06 Jul 2017 11:16:32
That's outrageous ed025, he's only been there a year, and you've been there all your life. Another case of a foreigner's opinion being valued more than an English one.

{Ed025's Note - i know danny..im considering my future mate.. :)

11.) 06 Jul 2017
06 Jul 2017 11:18:08
Not convinced this is a good signing. Yes, he scores goals, but for that kind of money, I would be trying to get a Lewdowski, an all round striker. Can't help but feel that Jose isn't happy with the transfer activity, rocked the boat, and we are going to end up with Lukaku.

12.) 06 Jul 2017
06 Jul 2017 11:18:26
Everton are saying no deal agreed yet.

at least you know rooney will give you 110% in an everton shirt ed025 as he's a dyed in the wool bluenose, if he gets his fitness up and gets a run of games i can see him doing a job for you.

{Ed025's Note - im not convinced james, will it mean tom davies or lookman put on the back burner?, but i suppose we will see mate..

14.) 06 Jul 2017

Craig Norwood has come out and said it's done. He doesn't normally do that unless he has got a job on at the club lol.

15.) 06 Jul 2017
06 Jul 2017 12:55:16
Wouldn't be surprised to see Morata end up at Chelsea now.

16.) 06 Jul 2017
06 Jul 2017 15:00:59
I wouldn't do this deal. Lukaku will get my full support if he does sign, but I don't think he fits.

17.) 06 Jul 2017
06 Jul 2017 15:11:20
I think Lukaku will be a huge success at the club - he will score more than Ibra did last year and will create more space for our more technical players as he will offer more in behind consequently creating more space.

18.) 06 Jul 2017
06 Jul 2017 16:07:33
Also, I can see Conte preferring Belotti over Morata. Fits Chelsea better.

19.) 06 Jul 2017
06 Jul 2017 16:18:23
I'll be delighted once this deal is finalised and I see him holding the shirt.

He has everything you need as a successful striker in the premier league. He's got pace, power, a good head on his shoulders and most importantly he scores plenty of goals. Will be interesting to see how many he can score with a much better team around him!

Let's just wait till he's pictured next to Jose holding that sweet red shirt!

Everyone saying we won't be going for Morata now, but we do need to replace both Ibra and Rooney. And we need a wide player, which Morata can do (although a specialist would be much better) . Big Lukaku is a good signing, but do you really think he can fill the boots of 9 and 10?

21.) 06 Jul 2017
06 Jul 2017 18:16:38
Rooney was a bit part player during the second half of the season, and we have plenty of players who can play the number 10 role on the occasions we decide to use it. In other words, Rooney has already been replaced and phased out of the first team.

22.) 06 Jul 2017
06 Jul 2017 18:27:38
Think we replaced Rooney 12 months ago when we bought Mkhitaryan.

Brilliant signing guaranteed prem goals very happy, hope this goes over the line. Get someone to hold and free up pogba we could mount a serious challenge in my opinion. Hopefully get martial with fire in his belly really rate him when he's on form.

24.) 06 Jul 2017
06 Jul 2017 22:20:00
How long does he get to adjust to the league though that is the question?

25.) 07 Jul 2017
07 Jul 2017 06:46:00
Lol zero time maze. He better hit that ground running.

Agreed Angel.

07 Jul 2017 08:06:47
If he gets correct service, he scores 20 premier league goals EASY IMO.

{Ed025's Note - at least mate..

28.) 07 Jul 2017
07 Jul 2017 10:10:30
Ed025 I think its a steal to be honest, 35 million for Lukaku, it's giving you rooney for 40 million that bothers me lol.

Lukaku going to bang in some amount of goals. Yes, not the best 1st touch, andy cole didn't either. But lethal, lethal finisher. Just watched all of his everton goals. How many of them were 1st touch finishes. He doesn't muck about.

{Ed025's Note - give him the service angel and he will get you the goals mate, the big plus is that he wants to be there which was not always the case at everton..

29.) 07 Jul 2017
07 Jul 2017 11:22:30
It feels ominous now ed025. Seeing him training with Pogba, I'd presume an announcement beckons at the weekend due to him being in LA.

I think he saw everton as a stepping stone, unfortunate but feels like that. I do hope he wants to be at United. I can rarely tell these days with the amount of money involved. Gone are the days when Keane, scholes etc. negotiated their own deals, mostly for lesser pay because they wanted to be there.

{Ed025's Note - i think pogba has been a big factor in him wanting united angel they are big mates and will help with his settling in, it will help mino raiola as well because he can bring the wages in a handcart instead of 2 wheelbarrows mate.. :)

30.) 07 Jul 2017
07 Jul 2017 11:48:48
Raiola must be laughing his head off ed025. That cash will fill a few pizza boxes alright!

Incredible how powerful agents have become, sad really.

{Ed025's Note - absolute leeches angel and mino is the greediest of the lot, they are bleeding the game dry mate..

So what has to happen to change it then ed? Sure FA's have to harder on these people.

I'm a professional musician, I have a manager and a very good lawyer. They do take a decent cut but I tell you, they work extremely hard for it. And to be very honest, not much I can do without them both. I need my manager as his expertise is vital and obviously my lawyer to discuss certain contracts.

But I'm still unsure as to why agents are such a force in today's game.

{Ed025's Note - a 12 gauge shotgun would work for me angel.. :)
