Premier League: Manchester United's new recruit Romelu Lukaku bids emotional farewell to Everton

London: Romelu Lukaku bid a fond farewell to Everton as he contemplated life with Manchester United following his move for a reported £75 million transfer record deal between British clubs.

Everton's record Premier League goalscorer with 68 posted his comments on Instagram from Los Angeles where he is on holiday with now United teammate Paul Pogba.

United's pre-season tour is in serendipitous fashion beginning in Los Angeles. Lukaku added: "To the staff at the the stadium and training ground thank you for making me feel home from the first day I walked in.

"To technical staff thank you for helping me become a better player. Working with you guys has been a pleasure and I'll take your advice throughout the rest of my career.

"Thank you Everton football club."

Lukaku — who Everton made a tidy profit on having bought him in 2014 from Chelsea for £28m — joins United after turning down the most lucrative contract offered by the Merseyside club at the end of last season.
