Chelsea fans react as Manchester United agree £75m fee to sign Romelu Lukaku
The news that Romelu Lukaku is on his way to Old Trafford — not Stamford Bridge — has sent Chelsea fans into outrage.
For most of the summer, Lukaku’s future had seemed well and truly sorted. But Chelsea stalled and now United have moved in.
Antonio Conte wanted the Belgian striker and Lukaku was keen to return to Chelsea, so all the club needed to do was get the deal done. Now, they risk losing out at the expense of a rival.
The fans aren’t happy.
Former manager, Jose Mourinho has swooped in under United’s wing… and had a massive £75 million bid for Lukaku accepted.
It is believed Lukaku will have a medical in LA where he will meet up with Mourinho and his squad for the club’s pre-season tour.
Check out how Blues’ supporters are reacting on Twitter…

What I don't understand is the ease with which United have agreed that fee for Lukaku. What have WE been doing?— Chelsea Rumours (@ChelseaRumours) 6 July 2017
Last week Tom was telling everyone how he was getting Lukaku on the back of his new Chelsea replica shirt.
Today's reports are suggesting that Rooney will return to Everton as part of the Lukaku deal, increasing the asking price to £100m.— Paddy Power (@paddypower) 7 July 2017
Conte instructed the board to sign Lukaku. We are the Champions, shouldn't be losing players from under our noses. This isn't good! #CFC— George Benson (@MrGeorgeBenson) 6 July 2017
