Romelu Lukaku has wished goodbye to Everton’s fans ahead of completing his move to Manchester United this week.

Man United have already announced a deal is in place for Lukaku to become Jose Mourinho‘s second summer signing but he hasn’t yet officially completed the transfer, although that is now imminent.

Writing on his official Instagram page, Lukaku said goodbye to Everton supporters and thanked the club for everything over the last four years. He said: “I want to say a big thank you to all the people involved at @everton. I want to thank the fans for your support throughout the 4 years we’ve spend together. You guys helped me through all my games and I can proudly say it was an honour to play in front of you. To the staff at the the stadium and trainingground thank you for making me feel home from the first day i walked in. To my teammates it was great to play with you guys. To technical staff thank you for helping me become a better player. Working with you guys has been a pleasure and i’ll take ur advice throughout the rest of my career. Thank you everton football club 💯.

After four years with Everton, this is the big move to a Champions League side that Lukaku has been craving and it is now up to him to make sure he follows up on an impressive 25 Premier League goals last season to show he’s got what it takes to play at the top level.

United kick-off their pre-season tour early on Sunday morning against MLS side LA Galaxy and we’re expecting to see both Lukaku and fellow new signing Victor Lindelof lining up in United shirts for the first time which is very exciting ahead of the new season.
