Instagram Post Sees Lukaku To United Odds Slashed


William Hill have halved the price of Romelu Lukaku joining Manchester United from 10/1 to 5/1 after Mephis Depay posted an Instagram picture of the pair together. He is the joint second favourite to be the “secret striker” alongside Edinson Cavani and Harry Kane - but Fernando Llorente is the 5/2 favourite.


Other names seemingly in contention are Zlatan Ibrahimovic at 6/1 and Gonzalo Higuain at 7/1.


“The photo of Lukaku posted on Instagram by Depay seems to have whipped the internet into a frenzy and the Belgian’s odds of joining Manchester United have tumbled,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


To join Manchester United in the summer transfer window: 5/2 Fernando Llorente; 5/1 Edinson Cavani; 5/1 Harry Kane; 5/1 Romelu Lukaku; 6/1 Zlatan Ibrahimovic; 7/1 Gonzalo Higuain; 10/1 Alexandre Lacazette; 10/1 Cristiano Ronaldo; 10/1 Karim Benzema; 10/1 Robert Lewandowski; 10/1 Saido Berahino; 12/1 Charlie Austin; 12/1 Klaas Jan Huntelaar
