Manchester United plot big money move for Romelu Lukaku

Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal is looking to add goals to his side this month and will consider a big money move for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Everton striker has been in sensational form this season and has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park. It is understood that Van Gaal is an admirer of the Belgian and is willing to break the bank for him.

The Old Trafford outfit are struggling due to the lack of goals this season and after a strong start to the season, they have dropped out of the top four now.

A signing like Lukaku could turn their season around and ensure a strong finish. It will be interesting to see if Manchester United lodge a formal offer anytime soon.

With Martial capable of operating as a wide forward, Lukaku could be the ideal number nine for Louis Van Gaal’s side.

The former Chelsea striker is likely to cost in the region of 50 million euros. However, it is highly unlikely that Everton will let him leave in the middle of the season.

Lukaku’s wages are not a problem for Manchester United. The Belgian earns around £40,000 per week at Everton and that is likely to increase a lot if he moves to Old Trafford.
