Well-known sports agent Michael Jarman has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to the reported transfer fee that Manchester United had to pay Everton in order to sign Romelu Lukaku in the summer transfer window.
United recently recruited Belgium international striker Lukaku from Premier League rivals Everton on a five-year contract.
According to BBC Sport, the Red Devils will pay the Toffees an initial transfer fee of £75 million for the 24-year-old, with £15m in add-ons. The Times has reported that the transfer fee could reach £100m.
Well-known sports agent Jarman, who was being considered by Nottingham Forest for the role of director of football at the City Ground in February 2017 according to The Nottingham Post, has taken to Twitter to give his take on Lukaku’s reported transfer fee.
Lukaku for sub 100mil!!! Great signing but that fee is ridiculous— Michael Jarman (@MichaelMJarman) July 8, 2017
Lukaku is one of the best strikers in the world, and his performances in the Premier League in recent years have been superb.
A transfer fee of £75m or £100m is indeed a lot of money, but it will be worth it if the Belgian scores the goals to guide Jose Mourinho’s United to the Premier League title next season.
