Updated Manchester United have announced that they have successfully negotiated what stands to be a world record fee with Everton for Romelu Lukaku.

The Toffees have accepted a bid of £75m rising to £90m if appearance-related add-ons are triggered, with finalisation of the transfer dependent on the Belgian agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.

The news comes after reports that Chelsea had matched the base bid offered by United but it has not been enough to put them ahead in the race to sign their former striker.

Either with Everton's permission or without, Lukaku has remained in Los Angeles this week to hold talks and undergo a medical with United's staff who are preparing for the forthcoming International Champions Cup which kicks off on 19 July.

The move that will take Lukaku from Goodison Park to Old Trafford could be formally announced later today along with Everton's confirmation of Wayne Rooney's return to Goodison Park on a free transfer.
