Transfer windows always bring the laughs every time they come around, but this latest report is sending Manchester United fans into hysterics.
According to Sky Italia, Juventus would accept a deal of Romelu Lukaku plus cash for Paulo Dybala. However, it is this next part which is making the Red Devils lose their composure.
Apparently, Maurizio Sarri is looking to bring in Romelu Lukaku as competition for star man Cristiano Ronaldo.

While Lukaku has shown he is a potent goalscorer, it might be a bit much to expect him to compete with the imperious Portuguese star, who has hit more than 25 goals in each of the last 10 seasons in his career.
The report has livened up the hearts of the Old Trafford faithful, who have not had too much to smile about due to a slow transfer window this summer as they’ve only signed two players.
Here is a selection of tweets from Manchester United fans following the reports:
And Lukaku is going to be that ‘competition’ ?
