Romelu turns red and Wazza goes back to blue

Over the last two days, some big news has emerged. Romelu Lukaku who has been linked with Chelsea constantly this summer, has been announced as our latest signing at United. The fee is expected to be in the region of £85 million plus add-ons. The following day it was announced that Wayne Rooney has returned to his boyhood club Everton.

Over the last few years Wayne Rooney has failed to perform at his best and has found himself being a backup striker and getting barely any game time. We all know that it was only a matter of time before he left the club but nobody could really imagine the day he really left. Rooney joined Manchester United as a talented teenager 13 years ago and has left today as our highest ever goal scorer, surpassing Sir Bobby Charlton last season. The love our fanbase has for him is unquantifiable. He will be remembered in the history of Manchester United forever. He is one of the few players that can say that they have won all there is to offer in domestic football for a single club. He is a Manchester United legend.

In brighter news, the arrival or Romulu Lukaku from Everton suggests that exciting times are ahead for United fans. After announcing that they were not going to renew Zlatan Ibrahimovic's contract, Ed Woodward knew that he needed to bring in a top class centre forward. He delivered in that aspect as Lukaku ticks all the boxes. Furthermore, often strikers find it hard to adjust to the physicality of the Premier League, but Lukaku has proven every year that he has what it takes to be one of the best in the most competitive league.

During the summer transfer window, United have been linked with a move for Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata. Although reports kept suggesting that a deal was almost done and the clubs were close to agreeing a fee, the move kept seeming less and less likely. Morata's minutes per goal ratio last season was exceptional, only Messi had a better games to goals ratio that the Real Madrid forward, who was finding it hard to get game time in Madrid. After the arrival of Lukaku to United, a move for Morata doesn't look like it's on the cards. However, with the biggest club in the world, you never know...
