Blues deal for £15m striker could ‘become reality’

Published Add your comment

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has praised Anderlecht striker Romelu Lukaku, admitting that the prospect of a deal for the youngster might become a reality.

Chelsea reportedly made a £15 million bid for Lukaku three days ago, according to the Daily Telegraph, and Villas-Boas was very cagey when asked about the star after the Blues’ friendly.

"It's [Lukaku] a player I know, obviously, and had a magnificent season in Belgium," the Chelsea manager said.


"Let's wait and see if it becomes a reality or not."

Chelsea have long been connected to the 18-year-old, who has been dubbed the new Didier Drogba for displaying amazing striking talent at such a young age.

And Villas-Boas’ comments will no doubt excite fans, who are still awaiting Chelsea’s big name signing this summer.

Should Lukaku make the move to Chelsea, competition for the striking positions will be rife, with Fernando Torres, Drogba and Nickolas Anelka all in the mix for a starting position.
