Romelu Lukaku set to make Manchester United debut against LA Galaxy

by Sam Peoples

Romelu Lukaku’s first game for Manchester United is set to be the first game of the US pre-season tour against LA Galaxy on July 15.

To the surprise of all Man United fans, the club agreed a £75m deal with Lukaku and United intend for Lukaku to fly out with the squad on Sunday for the beginning of our pre-season tour.

When Craig Norwood pipes up, it is an almost certain deal so you can start getting excited about Lukaku joining United lads.

Alvaro Morata was very much United’s target this summer but Real Madrid continued to play hardball in the negotiations and tried to maintain the upper hand by continuing to reject our bids which were below their €80m valuation. They thought United had no other target and they were safe to play hardball – my, how that has backfired.

It seems at the same time as United were pursuing Morata, we were negotiating for Lukaku in the background. Ed Woodward, you may have outdone yourself here sir.

So, United fans may have wanted to see Morata line up against LA Galaxy on 15 July but it’s now going to be Lukaku!
