Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern cannot believe the news they’re reading in the Daily Star – with the publication claiming that the Red Devils are plotting a shock swoop for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku in January.
The publication cites The Sun, with the media outlet suggesting that Louis van Gaal has earmarked the Belgian striker as a potential option to bring in to Old Trafford in January.
This news has made several United fans spill their pints here in the Tavern, with them all agreeing they would absolutely love to see the 22-year-old forward at the club, as he incredibly prolific for his age.
The former Chelsea star is Everton’s main source of goals, and has thus far notched 21 goals in 51 appearances for the Toffees, so Roberto Martinez will surely be keen to keep hold of the 6ft 3 powerhouse.
Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern thinks Lukaku would be an outrageously astute signing for Louis van Gaal and his team, and would ultimately add an element of firepower and potency to a team that are in dire need of some rejuvenation.
Manchester United fans….. You must be excited at this news? Is Lukaku the man you need in January? Can you imagine LVG pulling off a deal of this magnitude? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
