Picture: Romelu Lukaku signs his first Manchester United jersey for a fan

Manchester United Football Club seems to be on the verge of sealing a deal for Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian beast, 24, would be a stunning acquisition and hopefully, he’ll be officially confirmed as a Red Devil before our first pre-season friendly against the LA Galaxy.

The striker is already having a good impression on the fans, as he was pictured signing a shirt already. To me, this tells us that the deal is as good as done and before long, things should all be wrapped up. If he feels confident enough to start signing shirts, he must know that only a few little things need to be finalised.

It comes as no secret that Jose Mourinho needs a new star striker going into the new season. Zlatan Ibrahimovic led our league scoring charts with 17 goals last term and when you compare that to Lukaku’s 25, it is certainly a huge upgrade in the goals department.

This is a signing that definitely excites me. Lukaku is young, learning all the time and he wants to test himself against the very best in Europe. I think he’ll be a stunning addition for us, and I cannot wait to see him in action.
