Everton's record Premier League goalscorer, Romelu Lukaku left the Blues to join Manchester United in the summer of 2017.

The Belgian had become the Club's record signing three years earlier, having plundered 16 goals in all competitions during an initial loan spell from Chelsea in the 2013/14 campaign.  

Lukaku had previously had another hugely productive temporary spell at West Bromwich Albion in 2012/13, during which he netted 17 times for the Baggies.

Earlier in his career, the powerful frontman had shot to prominence when he made his Anderlecht debut as a 16-year-old and became a regular for the next two seasons.

His form caught the eye of clubs across Europe but it was Chelsea who won the race for his signature in 2011. He was a bit-part player for his first season, playing mainly in the League Cup and for the reserves.

The following campaign he agreed a loan switch to the Hawthorns and was immediately among the goals. Lukaku would score in a win at Anfield and bag a hat-trick against Manchester United before returning to Stamford Bridge.

At the start of the 2013/14 season, Lukaku made three substitute appearances for Jose Mourinho's side, including one in the UEFA Super Cup, before switching to Merseyside.

Lukaku's Everton career started with a bang and he scored a winning goal at West Ham United on his debut, before grabbing a brace at home to Newcastle United.

He continued to find the net regularly as the season progressed, netting another double in the home Merseyside derby and a wonderstrike in the 3-0 thrashing of Arsenal.

He signed off from his loan spell with the Blues by scoring in the final Premier League fixture of the season - a 2-0 win away at Hull City.

Lukaku then headed to the World Cup in Brazil, where he helped Belgium to reach the quarter-finals, scoring against USA in the round of 16.

Upon returning to Europe, his move to Goodison Park was rubber-stamped as he once again linked up with manager Roberto Martinez.

Lukaku picked up from where he left off by scoring 20 goals in 47 games for Everton in the 2014/15 campaign, finishing as the joint-top goalscorer in the UEFA Europa League with eight European strikes.

The 2015/16 season brought more goals - 25 from 46 matches in all competitions, which included a run of netting in eight straight matches during November and December.

Lukaku’s standout strike, undoubtedly, was his opener in the FA Cup quarter-final victory over Chelsea - a wonderful weaving run-and-finish which booked the Toffees’ trip to Wembley.

The 2016/17 campaign was even more fruitful for Lukaku, who finished with 32 goals in 43 appearances for Club and country, earning him Everton's Player and Players' Player of the Season awards.

His strike at Tottenham Hotspur in March saw him overtake Duncan Ferguson's Club record of 60 Premier League goals, while in registering at Burnley the following month he became the first Everton player to score in nine successive Goodison Park games since the late, great Dixie Dean.

Lukaku's transfer to Manchester United was confirmed by the Club on 10 July 2017, the day after Wayne Rooney had moved in the opposite direction.
