Reports are emerging from Belgium that state that Anderlecht youngster Romelu Lukaku has been signed by Manchester City in a deal worth £18m which will see the teenage striker move to the Premier League side in July. The Belgian international has been the subject of a great deal of interest from across Europe and the talented 17 year old striker will be sealing a move to the club he reportedly supports.
Earlier this month, Lukaku told Goal.com: “Chelsea is my favourite team. I have always said it and I have never hidden it.”
Given the embarrassment of riches that Roberto Mancini has to call upon in the attacking third one wonders just how the powerfully built striker will fit into first team plans at Manchester City but it is clear that Lukaku is a player with great potential and is presumably being purchased as part of a long term plan rather than necessarily being an instant first team regular.
Lukaku had a terrific first full season at Anderlect last term where he helped the Brussels side to a domestic double, netting 19 goals in the process. This term the 6ft 3in front man has already scored 17 goals and has reaffirmed his reputation as one of the hottest prospects in the game.
