Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho exchanged texts with Romelu Lukaku before Everton accepted their offer for the Belgian.

The Sun says last week Mourinho sent his target a text, saying he was looking forward to working with him again. Sorting out their relationship was key to the move — and Lukaku has stressed he can succeed alongside Mourinho or anybody else.

Rom, who declared his career is on a “path set by God”, said: “I know I can succeed under any trainer.

“After leaving Chelsea, I made an analysis of myself to see what could be better. But now I can fit under any trainer and at any club.”

Chelsea made a last-ditch attempt to hijack United’s move with a matching offer late on Friday night. But the Prem champions — unlike United — refused to pay the £12m costs for agent Mino Raiola.

Now Lukaku will be getting a £200,000-per-week salary and earn performance-based extra benefits.
