Football fanatics are all aware of the big news from the world of football which at the moment is Romelu Lukaku’s £75million transfer from Everton to Manchester United.

The Belgian is on the brink of completing a £75million transfer – plus add-ons – to United after the two clubs finally came to an agreement over the fee which could rise to more than £100m.

While the move is yet to be officially confirmed, the 24-year-old revealed details of his medical, which he undertook while holidaying in California with new teammate Paul Pogba.

The Herald (Ireland paper) went for a back page headlined: “Lukaku is ready for work” along with what they thought was a picture of the forward.

The picture in fact is from United’s away kit launch from last May where he posed with David Beckham in London. The pair do share a passing resemblance, which has been picked up on before, but they don’t look that alike.
