Romelu Lukaku arrived at Manchester United in a deal worth an £75million.

The 24-year-old links up with good friend Paul Pogba at Old Trafford who holds the world-record transfer fee at £89million when he returned to the red half of Manchester last summer.


The pair have been close friends for a number of years and were on holiday in Los Angeles together as the striker underwent a medical ahead of penning a five-year deal, with the option of a sixth, on Monday.

United were also party to another massive transfer back in 2009 when Cristiano Ronaldo moved to Real Madrid in a then record £80million deal.

There’s been much talk about Neymar’s transfer fee when he signed for Barcelona but because of varying figures quoted, he’s been left out of the list in this video.
