Man United weighing up audacious £50m for former Chelsea star

Manchester United are preparing a stunning £50m bid to land Everton star Romelu Lukaku, according to the Metro.

The Toffees striker is back to his best after a frustrating season last term after joining the club in a record £28m deal.

The 21-year old has a record of 1 goal every 2 games on Merseyside and recently emerged as one of the top forwards in the Premier League.

The Red Devils are said to have taken stock of his talents and are preparing a huge bid to bring him to Old Trafford.

Manager Louis van Gaal has seen his forward line struggle this season as skipper Wayne Rooney toils in front of goal.

Despite £36.6m teenage sensation Anthony Martial’s electric start to life at the club, the 19-year old is still adapting to life in England.

Now, they are reportedly eyeing the Belgian centre-forward to reignite their attacking department and are ready to pay what would be a club record fee for a striker.

Everton are notoriously reluctant to sell their top talents, having battled to keep John Stones at the club in the summer amid numerous bids from Chelsea.
