Louis Van Gaal has targeted Everton striker Romelu Lukaku as the man to lead the Man United attack – if they can’t get Mario Mandzukic…
Belgian hitman Lukaku has had a quiet summer regarding transfer speculation after being the name on most people’s lips for the previous two. He cost Everton £28 million from Chelsea, after a promising season on loan, scoring 15 goals in his 31 matches. That was two goals less than the season before on loan at West Brom and last season was less productive still (just ten in 36 matches). Perhaps that’s why the deal is dependent on United failing to prize Mario Mandzukic away from Atletico Madrid. Everton will not want to see another big hitter exit towards Manchester though. Fellaini and Rooney have previously done it, with the less than spectacular Darron Gibson, Phil Neville and Tom Cleverley making the opposite journey. And with Lukaku Everton’s only established striker – Kone is yet to make an impression and Naismith is not an out-and-out attacker – his absence would leave a gaping hole that could prove tricky to fill.
