The BBC reports this morning that Man Utd have agreed a deal with Everton to sign Romelu Lukaku.
The fee is said to be around £75 million for the striker and the club hopes to have the deal inked before they leave for a pre-season tour of the US on Sunday.
Lukaku had widely been expected to make a return to Chelsea with Diego Costa's move to Atletico Madrid almost done.
The Belgian's likely move to Old Trafford is said to have ended Man Utd's pursuit of Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata.
Seems Real Madrid thought Morata was Mourinho's only realistic option. Didn't budge on fee. United quietly working on Lukaku. Well played.

Earlier this summer, it was reported that Man Utd had switched their priorities following news that Zlatan Ibrahimovic would likely miss the majority of next season.
They had been expected to make Antoine Griezmann their number one target. However, the Swede's injury meant they made the acquisition of a direct replacement for Ibrahimovic their number one priority.
If Man Utd do complete a deal for Lukaku, it will be the second time he has played under Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese was Chelsea manager when Lukaku moved from Stamford Bridge to Everton in 2014.
The Telegraph's James Ducker reported earlier today that Man Utd were looking to use Wayne Rooney as a makeweight in a move for Lukaku. It was reported on Wednesday that the 31-year-old Rooney is likely to leave Old Trafford with Goodison Park his destination.
