Romelu Lukaku, whose contract includes an option for a sixth year, said:

“I would like to start by thanking Everton and the fans for the last four wonderful seasons, I have made some special friends and we have shared some amazing moments. However, when Manchester United and Jose Mourinho come knocking at the door it is an opportunity of a lifetime and one that I could not turn down.

“You could see the fight, determination and the spirit in this team during the Europa League final and I want to become a part of that. I cannot wait to run out at Old Trafford in front of 75,000 fans but before that pre-season is where the hard work starts and I am looking forward to that first training session.

First of all i want to thank God for this opportunity. Delighted and blessed to be part of the greatest club in the world @ManUtdpic.twitter.com/dWrQjHkH5a
