Manchester United announced on their official website on Saturday that they have agreed a £75m deal to sign Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, which will see Wayne Rooney move to Goodison Park and also includes a potential £15m in add-ons.
Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho has been looking for a replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer and he looks to be closing in on the 24-year-old despite Chelsea matching their bid, according to BBC Football.
The Belgium international scored 25 Premier League goals for the Toffees last season and United will want to wrap the deal up before they fly to America as part of their pre-season preparations on Sunday.
Red Devils supporters were quick to have their say on the news via social media, and while many were delighted to welcome Lukaku to the club and want to see him score more than 25 goals next season, not everyone was so pleased.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Welcome to the best team in the world @RomeluLukaku9

Can't wait to see him accidentally score a hat trick at Anfield with his first touch.
