Jose Mourinho The Manchester United boss is set to sign a new big-name striker

Manchester United news 'Romelu Lukaku is a straight forward signing and a BIG one for Jose Mourinho'- Rene Meulensteen on talkSPORT

Former Manchester United striker Yorke has backed Lukaku to embrace the pressure of playing for the Red Devils despite suggestions the former Chelsea striker could thrive in Old Trafford's unforgiving environment.

At the age of 23, he has already emerged as a great Premier League player in two separate positions and he has potential to grow significantly in the future.

United insisted Lukaku was their "principle target" this summer despite having been locked in negotiations with Madrid since it became apparent that Antoine Griezmann would not join at the start of June.

The United squad is now in Los Angeles as it begins its preseason tour of the States.

The 54-year-old insisted that the discussion is going on between executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and Zlatan's agent Mino Raiola, adding that the decision would be taken in the best interest of the player.

Lukaku and Lindelof will undoubtedly have a major impact at each end of the pitch, but it's felt as though Mourinho still needs to strengthen that midfield to build a new core through the backbone of the side.

Premier League champions Chelsea are reportedly holding on to Serbia global Matic until they complete the signing of Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, which is believed to be close.

Neville, talking at the Star Sixes tournament at London's o2, reckons Lukaku does still have something to prove despite the sizeable price-tag as he gets set to make his United bow in Sunday's friendly against LA Galaxy.

Paper Round's view: We're not really sure what to make of this. It led United to push ahead with negotiations for Lukaku and Morata before opting to sign the Belgium worldwide. The British source also stated that the clubs have agreed a price for him.

"He did not want that, he was not happy with his finish (to the season) and not playing". You saw how well he did for Everton last season and the amount of goals he scored. But they are also buying someone who has the ability to improve and needs to show it on a bigger stage. Recovery from Ibrahimovic's injury is typically between nine to 12 months.

A pacey, cool, prolific striker, Lacazette is expected to help propel Arsenal back up the Premier League after finishing fifth last season and missing out on the Champions League. "I think they need to strengthen, so I'm not sure why they're letting him go and they must have a replacement". We have to respect the player and the club, the owner, the manager. He's always kept his feet on the ground and kept working.

The two will be pitted against each other next season, with Lukaku boasting the most Premier League goalscoring pedigree.
