Manchester United transfer news and rumours: Red Devils 'monitoring Romelu Lukaku contract situation'

Manchester United are keeping tabs on Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, who is yet to finalise a new deal at Goodison Park.

The Telegraph reports that both Chelsea and United are monitoring the Belgian hitman’s situation, after the Toffees refused to include any buy-out clause worth under £90million in his new deal.

Lukaku bagged his 19th league goal of the campaign against West Brom at the weekend but after the game responded to a question by a Dutch journalist over whether he will sign the contract Everton have offered simply by saying “No”.

Lukaku has two years left on his current contract at Goodison Park.

Chelsea progressed to the semi-finals of the FA Cup by beating Manchester United in a fiery clash at Stamford Bridge.

The excellent N’Golo Kante scored the only goal of the game as Antonio Conte’s men remain on course for the double.

The Frenchman, who dominated Paul Pogba throughout, fired home from the edge of the box to beat David De Gea.

Ander Herrera had seen red during the first-half for United, before Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte clashed.

Here are five things we learned.

Mourinho’s Oliver displeasure

Jose Mourinho refused to give his opinion on Ander Herrera’s red card in Manchester United’s FA Cup defeat to Chelsea.

The Spaniard was dismissed by referee Michael Oliver for two fouls on the tricky Eden Hazard after just 35 minutes.

He picked up his first yellow card for body checking the Belgian before he was shown another – and then a red – for tripping him up.

And Mourinho was less than happy. Check out his reaction here
