Chelsea set to sell Lukaku, but Everton to miss out

Published Add your comment

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho would appear to have already decided to sell Romelu Lukaku during the summer transfer window but, reports in Belgium claim, he will not do so to another club in the Premier League, meaning Everton will be unable to clinch a permanent deal for the on-loan striker.

Lukaku joined Everton on loan for the duration of the season and, so far, has scored 10 Premier League goals having found the net on 17 occasions during the previous campaign while with West Brom on a similar deal. But, according to Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws, Lukaku will not be afforded the chance to stay in English football.

HLN report that sources inside Chelsea have revealed Mourinho does not believe Lukaku has the mentality to prove successful in one of his teams and, while he is ready to let the 20-year-old leave Stamford Bridge, the Portuguese has no intention of another Premier League club being able to prove him wrong.

Chelsea would be willing to accept €20 million for Lukaku, not a great deal more than was paid to sign him as a teenager, with Atletico Madrid, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund all having been linked with the Belgium international.
