Romelu Lukaku has stated that he would like to remain at Chelsea next season, but agrees he might need to move away for regular football whatever happens at the World Cup and beyond.
Lukaku still believes that he has a future at Chelsea and hopes Mourinho will give him the chance to lead the line, but with reports that Diego Costa will sign in a couple of days does this put an end to his chances?
Lukaku has been out on loan for the last two season with West Brom and recently Everton. These spells away from the Stamford Bridge have been very successful, which leaves fans wondering why doesn't Jose Mourinho trust him?
You would think Mourinho would jump at the chance to use him seen thanks to a physicality which evokes comparisons to Dider Drogba, who Mourinho called the best player he's ever worked.
Lukaku has his big chance to prove Mourinho wrong this summer with the Belgium team competing in the World Cup, and will definitely be his nation's main man thanks to Christan Benteke's injury.
If Eden Hazard and Lukaku create a partnership that stands out during the World Cup it might be enough to convince the Chelsea coach he is very valuable.
Lukaku has competition, no doubt about it, but it would be great for Chelsea in the long-term if both the starlet and Diego Costa take the World Cup by storm and return stronger for it next season ahead of a Premier League assault.
Lukaku has taken his brilliant Everton form to Belgium and scored a hat-trick in their warm up game against Luxembourg, but can he do enough this summer to win a place in Mourinho's plans for next season.
