Manchester United have been linked with a whole host of strikers during this summer’s transfer window but it is safe to say that no-one really knows who Louis van Gaal is targeting.
Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, as has Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane.
However, Memphis Depay may have inadvertently revealed Man United’s intentions by posting a photo of Romelu Lukaku on his Instagram account with the caption “see you soon.”
The rumour mill has gone into overdrive as a result and we asked our Twitter followers if they would be happy if Lukaku joined United:

@UnitedPeoplesTV yeah he’s big and powerful and can score goals and he’s still young so can improve. However don’t think is a LVG player

Everton performed poorly last season but Lukaku still managed to score 20 goals in all competitions.
The Belgian has consistently scored goals at West Bromwich Albion and Anderlecht but his reputation seems to have been tarnished following a poor spell at Chelsea.
Lukaku certainly wouldn’t be the worst signing in the world, although there is a question mark over whether or not he would fit into van Gaal’s philosophy. However, if United wanted to introduce a different element to their play, Lukaku would fit the ball perfectly.
