Chelsea match Manchester United's £75m bid for Romelu Lukaku

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

Chelsea were the club which first showed faith in his talent and brought him to the Premier League from Anderlecht as a teenager in 2011.

"We played together in London and (he has) had a lot of good seasons at Everton, and this year he has scored a lot of goals".

Costa will not be staying, Chelsea need a scorer and United seem to believe they have signed a reliable one for considerably less than the £100 million Everton were asking.

Chelsea's bid will test Lukaku's loyalties and emotions.

"I used to watch Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink scoring goals and remember one against Manchester United, the volley at Old Trafford, and I decided I wanted to support this team".

"Players were dropping deep at times to defend and the gap between the players and Ibrahimovic was quite big because he hasn't got the pace to get in behind".

Lukaku, a powerfully built, 6-foot-3 (1.90-meter) forward, played only a few games under Mourinho at Chelsea.

It may be the middle of the night in England, but the Romelu Lukaku situation is developing faster than a transfer deadline day acquisition.

It is even thought that the Everton striker has even completed a medical while in the USA.

Yet Neville insists that back then "Lukaku was a different player" as now he is a far "better player" as his current record in recent years is "sensational". "It was just what I was searching for", he said at the time.
