GETTYRomelu Lukaku is the top scorer in the Premier League

Everton would rather sell Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United than to Chelsea, according to reports.

Last summer, Everton scoring sensation Romelu Lukaku had been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea, but it didn't happen. None are as important as Lukaku to Everton. The saga left the Toffees opposed to doing business with Chelsea, and that feeling is still in effect in 2017.

He said: "I can never have enough of football".

Mourinho is now in charge of United and that could also work against the Old Trafford club.

One of the most dominating striking forces in the world now, he has some impressive stats for a player who has yet to hit his peak. If Costa was to move on, then Lukaku would be the flawless replacement.

Tottenham's star forward has 20 goals in the Premier League, while Everton's Belgian ace leads the charts with 24.

The Belgian, the top scorer in the Premier League at the moment, has made it clear that he won't be signing a new contract with Everton, indicating towards a transfer at the end of the season.

According to the Sun, the Blues hold the advantage in the transfer race with the Belgium worldwide having told pals that he prefers a return to Stamford Bridge rather than working with Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Diego Costa and Sergio Aguero have all scored 17 goals. The Merseyside club see Lukaku as the ideal player to build their team around by recruiting heavily in the summer.

Thus, he's eager to prove that he can flourish at the West London club.
