The Manchester United star poses with Romelu Lukaku to fuel speculation linking the striker with a move to Old Trafford
Paul Pogba has fuelled speculation linking Manchester United with a move to sign Romelu Lukaku after the pair hung out in LA on Thursday.
The Belgium international was thought to be on the brink of a move to Premier League champions Chelsea after reports suggested Antonio Conte had made signing the powerful forward is top priority.
However, Lukaku’s future remains unresolved despite the 24-year-old’s insistence that he will leave Everton in the summer transfer window.
On Thursday, Manchester United were widely reported to have stolen a march on their rivals Chelsea and had moved into pole position to sign the prolific Premier League striker.
And Pogba fanned the speculation with an Instagram post which was presumably designed to create some more buzz around Lukaku’s potential move to Manchester United.
The world-record signing posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:
“All white everything ⚪️⚪️”
Lukaku played under Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho at Chelsea before the Portuguese coach opted to sell the Belgian striker to Everton in a £27m deal in 2014.
