On Saturday morning, United confirmed that they had agreed a fee with Everton for Lukaku, with the deal now subject to the 24-year-old passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.
Shortly after United’s announcement, Pogba posted a video on Instagram of himself and Lukaku with the caption: “See you tomorrow in training @rlukaku9 #bienvenue #AgentP”
In the video, Lukaku says in French: “See you tomorrow in training.” Pogba replies: “What did you say?” Lukaku repeats: “See you tomorrow in training,” to which Pogba shouts: “Yes sir!”
United fly out to the United States on Sunday for their pre-season tour, which will take in games against LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake, Mancheseter City, Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The club hope to have a deal concluded by Monday, which would thereby allow Lukaku to train with the rest of the squad at the University of California, Los Angeles on Monday.
Chelsea matched United’s bid £75m plus add-ons on Friday night but are expected to miss out on a player who Antonio Conte earmarked as a priority target.
