Romelu Lukaku's agent in talks over €25m Chelsea exit

Published Add your comment

Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku is being lined up for a summer exit from Stamford Bridge, after it emerged that his agent had been in contact with both Monaco and Borussia Dortmund over a potential move.

According to French newspaper Le 10 Sport, citing sources in the Italian media, Lukaku’s agent, Mino Raiola, has been in contact with the two European outfits over a possible transfer at the end of this season. Reports claim that €25million would be enough to convince the Blues to part ways with the Belgian forward, who was sent out on loan again this year after an impressive season with West Brom last campaign.

At Everton Lukaku has continued to attract plaudits from the critics, and many see him as having the potential to become a Didier Drogba-esque type player in the future. However Jose Mourinho is said to be looking abroad for options to bolster his attack, which may imply that he does not see the 20-year-old as an ideal candidate in the long-run.

Speculation arose yesterday suggesting that Chelsea would be open to the idea of offloading Lukaku, so long as it was to an overseas club and not another team in the Premier League. With Dortmund losing Robert Lewandowski in the summer and a number of teams showing interest in Monaco’s Radamel Falcao, it would seem that the talks they are holding with Raiola could be of some significance.
