Paul Pogba And Romelu Lukaku Gear Up For Next Season As They Plan New Celebration
With Lukaku on the verge of completing a £75million switch from Everton to Old Trafford – United will have spent £165m on the two pals, who have spent the summer relaxing in America.
And as well getting the early stages of pre-season under their belts, the pair also gave Red Devils fans a glimpse of a celebration we could see them do next season.
The two towering footballers leaped up and did a chest bump during their training session, which could be repeated should one of them score for United.
Despite the Red Devils agreeing a fee and the forward completing his medical, Lukaku is yet to be announced by the club.
And while Pogba was kitted out in Man Utd training gear, Lukaku wore a white Nike vest and grey shorts as they trained together.
They appeared to be in good spirits as the two Premier League stars were put through their paces at the University of California in Los Angeles.
Lukaku gave his fans an update after he completed his medical, with the message “FINITO!”.
The prospect of joining the “biggest club in the world” swayed Lukaku.
He was also keen to link up with Jose Mourinho again, and was encouraged to join Old Trafford by Pogba.
He told ESPN: “This is an opportunity that I’ve always wanted since I was a child.
“When [Manchester United] came calling, I didn’t have to think twice. So I’m really delighted to hopefully be part of their history.”
When asked why he chose United over former club Chelsea, Lukaku said: “I would say, ‘Who would say no to the biggest club in the world?’
“Best stadium in England. The best fans. This is the perfect opportunity. I always said I wanted to play for a team that’s challenging for every trophy that there is.”
Pogba celebrated Lukaku’s move on social media as the pair filmed themselves in their luxury pad in Los Angeles.
In the post on social media, Pogba also branded himself #AgentP following Lukaku’s imminent transfer from Everton.
The world’s most expensive midfielder wrote: “See you tomorrow in training @rlukaku9 #bienvenue #AgentP”
