Chelsea youngster reveals “dream” of becoming Stamford Bridge legend

Chelsea youngster Romelu Lukaku is planning to return to Stamford Bridge in the summer and is determined to make himself a Blues legend.

The 19-year-old also insisted he was not fazed by the prospect of having to dislodge current Chelsea strikers Fernando Torres and January transfer window signing Demba Ba.

Lukaku has been on loan at West Brom since the start of the season and had previlusly insisted he was happy to stay at the Hawthorns for another season after this one.

However, his latest comments have revealed he is champing at the bit for a Chelsea return and is ready to make an impact when his loan spell with the Baggies ends in the summer.

“Yeah, that is the dream. That's what I signed for Chelsea for," he told Sky Sports, when asked if he still believes his long-term future was at Stamford Bridge.

"My aim is to play at the Bridge and to be a legend over there in the future.

"But the time is going so really I need to keep playing. And hopefully in the next few years become one of the key elements at the Bridge.”

Lukaku has been in impressive form this season and has proved he is an effective Premier League striker when given a run of games.

The Belgium international joined Chelsea from Anderlecht in 2011 for a reported fee of £20million and was hailed as someone to take up the mantle of Blues legend Didier Drogba; such was his size and style of play.
