Striker Romelu Lukaku has posted a farewell message to Everton and its fans as he moves closer to completing a switch to Premier League giants Manchester United.

The Belgium international scored 53 league goals in 110 appearances for Everton since 2014 and was close to winning the league’s Golden Boot award last season with 25 goals, four behind Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

“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,” Lukaku said on Instagram.

United confirmed that they had agreed a fee for the 24-year-old on Saturday with British media reporting it to be around 75 million pounds (96.65 million).

Lukaku will also reunite with United manager Jose Mourinho, under whom he played at Chelsea.
