Lukaku arrested after rowdy party in Beverly Hills

The deal for the 24-year-old, initially reported by BBC Sport on Thursday, is believed to include £15m in add-ons.

Manchester United has agreed with Everton for the transfer of striker Romelu Lukaku, the club announced.

Rooney joined United from Everton for £27 million ($45.7 million) on the back of stunning displays at UEFA Euro 2004 and went on to win five Premier League titles, four League Cups and the 2015-2016 FA Cup on his way to a personal tally of 253 goals.

"A further announcement will be made in due course", United added.

The 24-year-old, who is thought to be on the verge of a £75m move from Everton to Manchester United, was arrested at about 8pm on Sunday after officers had given him "verbal warnings".

Raiola did extremely well out of United past year making an estimated £40m from Pogba's transfer from Juventus alone while stablemates Henrykh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic also joined the "Red Devils".

That left Chelsea, who appeared front-runners in the race to re-sign their former player, with an opening to still make a late intervention, and numerous reports on Friday evening suggested the Premier League champions have now matched the Red Devils' bid.

Although ostensibly separate, negotiations have been eased by the mutual interest in deals that have seen Rooney permitted a return to his boyhood club on a free transfer and United paying £75million for Lukaku.

Ironically Chelsea may now need to beat a path to Real's door to try and secure Morata's services.

Lukaku has spent much of this week training with friend Pogba in the United States, with the rest of Jose Mourinho's squad set for their pre season tour of Los Angeles.
