Romelu Lukaku Among Manchester United's Most Expensive Signings Ever

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jul 10, 2017 01:00 PM @KurtLaduma

Jose Mourinho's second signing ahead of next season for Manchester United, Romelu Lukaku, has been confirmed, but where does he fit among the club's most expensive purchases ever?

Click through the gallery above to see United' 10 most expensive signings in their history!

After Swedish defender Victor Lindelof signed for the Red Devils from Benfica, we found that, according to Transfermarkt, he was the club's fourth most expensive signing.

Following United's purchase of Lukaku, however, the defender has moved one down on the 10-man list, as the Belgian has become the second most expensive signing in the club's history.

Paul Pogba is United's, and the world's, most expensive transfer ever – he cost the Manchester club £89.25 million (R1.4 billion) when he joined them from Italian giants Juventus last year.

Rio Ferdinand is also among the club's biggest coups, despite his move from Leeds United taking place 15 years ago, as is Juan Sebastian Veron, who signed for the club 16 years ago.

Lukaku: Why I Joined Man Utd

The likes of Angel Di Maria, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata are also on the list, as are former Borussia Dortmund playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan and ex-Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov.

Do you think United will have another entry in this list by the end of this transfer window? Let us know in the comments section below.
