Has Manchester United’s Lukaku pursuit ended their Morata interest?

Jose Mourinho is very intent on signing attacking reinforcements this summer and reports have emerged of big interest in Everton forward Romelu Lukaku.

With the Belgian costing around 100 million euros, that could signal the end of Manchester United’s desire to sign Alvaro Morata as talks with Real Madrid continue be stuck on the transfer fee.

Sky Sports and BBC have reported on an imminent medical for Lukaku at Old Trafford, adding that this would result in United ending their attempts to sign Morata. Meanwhile, the Toffees have denied such an agreement.

Would Mourinho need both strikers? It’s true that they struggled to score goals last season and star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was released after picking up a serious knee injury.

Add in rumours of Wayne Rooney also leaving as a makeweight for Lukaku and it’s certainly not out of this world for the Europa League winners to splash out on two forwards, so long as they can surpass the difficult negotiations with Los Blancos.
