Lukaku set for bonus

Romelu Lukaku will land a lucrative bonus if he finishes top scorer for Belgium at the World Cup thanks to his deal at Old Trafford.

The other Red Devils take on Panama today and the Manchester United striker has more incentive than most to find the back of the net for his country.

Lukaku negotiated a series of cash triggers when he agreed to leave Everton for the Theatre of Dreams last summer in a deal which could eventually cost the Red Devils £90m.

The former Chelsea forward can also enhance his £300,000 per week pay packet by finishing top scorer at either the World Cup or European Championships, which ultimately brings a commercial benefit to the United money-making machine.

Lukaku is already in the money after he finished top scorer at United last season with 27 goals in all competitions, with reports he picked up a six-figure windfall.

The 25-year-old doesn't have an official boot supplier at present but United were determined to show how much they coveted him, knowing him finding the net for his country can only benefit his club in the long term.
