Chelsea fans were sent into meltdown as it was widely reported that Manchester United had agreed a deal to sign Everton striker Romelu Lukaku on Thursday morning.

The Blues had been in pole position to bring Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge for much of the summer but Jose Mourinho appears on the cusp of landing the 24-year-old Belgian.

Reports suggest the Red Devils have agreed a fee of £75million for Lukaku, following speculation that Chelsea were closing in on a £100m move for the Toffees forward.

The Premier League champions were keeping close tabs on Andrea Belotti earlier this summer and supporters are keen for Antonio Conte to step up his interest in the Torino hitman once again.

Torino president Urbano Cairo has stressed more than once, however, that any team wanting to sign Belotti will have to pay his £87million release clause.

United were also believed to be interested in Belotti but have turned their attention away from the Italian and Alvaro Morata.
