A video posted by Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, on his Instagram account might just have confirmed Romelu Lukaku’s move to Manchester United despite the 24-year-old striker being linked with a move to Chelsea all summer.
In a post in which the Manchester United midfielder branded himself #agentP, Pogba wrote “See you tomorrow in training @rlukaku9 #bienvenue #AgentP”
Below is the translation of the conversation Lukaku had with Pogba in the video:
Pogba: “It is done?”
Lukaku: “See you tomorrow at training.”
Pogba: “See you when?”
Lukaku: “Tomorrow, at training.”
Pogba: “What did you say?”
Lukaku: “Tomorrow, at training. I’ll see you tomorrow, at training.”
Pogba: “It’s done!”
Lukaku: “The wait is over!”
If this conversation is a confirmation of Lukaku’s transfer to Manchester United then questions need to be asked by those in charge of transfer negotiations in Chelsea. How did Chelsea lose the signing of Lukaku to a rival despite Chelsea leading the race for a long time?
Manchester United also confirmed this morning that a fee has been agreed with Everton for the transfer of Lukaku pending personal terms with Lukaku.
Chelsea have reportedly matched Manchester United’s offer for the 24-year-old Belgian but it seems Lukaku is closer to joining Manchester United than Chelsea.
Hope we are not making the same mistakes we made in the summer of 2015 after winning the Premier League title?
