Manchester United New Sign-on, Lukalu, Arrested in US

Everton’s outgoing player, Romelu Lukaku, has run into trouble in the United States.

The player who is believed to be on his way to Manchester United ran into trouble for raucous partying in California.

The 24 year old, Sports Village Square gathered from AP reports, was arrested at a house he was staying at in Beverly Hills after officers warned him five times to turn down the music at a party, police said Saturday.

The striker from Belgium plays for Everton in the Premier League, but Manchester United is trying to sign him to a $97 million (75 million) transfer deal.

It’s not clear why Lukaku was in the Los Angeles area, but Manchester United plays the LA Galaxy in a preseason exhibition next weekend.

Lukaku was not handcuffed or booked July 2 when he was cited for the misdemeanor of excessive noise, Sgt. Jay Kim said.

He had 25 league goals last season and was the second-highest scorer in the Premier League.

Lukaku was scheduled to appear in Los Angeles Superior Court on Oct. 2.
