There was an overwhelming feeling of relief from Manchester United supporters on Monday as the signing of Romelu Lukaku was finally announced.
The Belgian underwent a medical with the Red Devils in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon, and it had been thought that the arrival of the 24-year-old from Everton would be confirmed before the start of this week.
Man United took their time in announcing the signing after Wayne Rooney’s departure was confirmed on Sunday, but Lukaku has finally become a Man United player, signing a five-year contract with the 20-time English champions.
Lukaku was already in the United States enjoying a holiday, and he will link-up with his new teammates for their pre-season tour of North America, which will features matches against the likes of Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona.
It is understood that Man United have paid a base figure of £75m for Lukaku, although that price could rise due to various add-ons.
The English club’s supporters are not bothered about the transfer fee, however, only that the exciting Belgium has finally arrived at the Theatre of Dreams.
