by Tanveer Arayan

Manchester United will still pursue a deal for Romelu Lukaku even if they sign Alvaro Morata, according to reports.

Morata has become a top priority at Old Trafford, especially after Antoine Griezmann decided to commit his future to Atletico Madrid following their recent transfer ban.

Everton are demanding a world-record fee of £100m for Lukaku following his spectacular season in the Premier League with 25 goals to his name last campaign.

He’s proven in the Premier League and has been performing even his team-mates have let him down, which is the reason why United are still looking to sign him.

Although Jose Mourinho let him go during their time at Chelsea, the Belgian is said to be ready to put that behind him as he looks to play Champions League football.

He’s been in California and even met up with Paul Pogba as they did last season before the pre-season, as both friends are set to return back to their clubs next week.

Lukaku wants to determine whether he would feature in the Portuguese tactician’s plans and what sort of role he would play before making the switch.

Chelsea and Liverpool are also interested and in talks with him, but he could end up anywhere as he looks to progress in his career.
