Chelsea have been linked with former prodigy Romelu Lukaku all summer, and the 24-year-old is seen as a possible replacement for outgoing Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku.
According to BBC presenter Richard Askam, representatives of Lukaku prefer him to move to Manchester United over Chelsea.
“Could be bargaining tool but good source tells me Lukaku camp seem to favour move to Man Utd over Chelsea #efc #mufc #cfc,” he said on Twitter.

While Chelsea are looking for a replacement for Costa, Manchester United are looking for a replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Both clubs have been linked with Lukaku and Alvaro Morata this summer. While Manchester United seem to be edging closer to the signing of Morata and Chelsea favouring Lukaku, none of the deals have come close to reality yet.
