Manchester United star Romelu Lukaku has reportedly agreed personal terms with Juventus, meaning a move should now be inevitable barring any shocking twists.
The Italian giants suddenly became the favourites to secure the talented Belgian’s signature after Inter Milan seemingly couldn’t come up with the funds to do so themselves.
It’s believed Juventus are only planning to buy Lukaku in a swap deal involving Paulo Dybala switching to Old Trafford.
The sensational Argentine is said to be the only man holding up the transfer as he attempts to make a decision on his future.
However, on Romelu’s side it appears things are as clear as day and he’s now even agreed his new contract with his potentially new side.

While Lukaku seems happy to agree to a similar salary as to the one he’s currently earning at United, Dybala is believed to have request almost double his current figures.
The versatile attacker clearly wants to be compensated for the club’s lack of Champions League football and wants his new deal to reflect his importance at Old Trafford.
It’s fair to say no fan could’ve predicted Paulo making a move to the Red Devils this summer but this surprise transfer may be work well for all parties involved.
