Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has decided to sell Romelu Lukaku this summer as part of a concerted effort to bring one of the world's best strikers to Stamford Bridge, writes Rob Shepherd in the Daily Mail.

Lukaku started the season with Chelsea but Mourinho decided the Belgian international was not ready to lead the line in West London, farming the forward out to Premier League rivals Everton on a year-long loan deal.

The 20-year-old scored 17 goals in a similar spell at West Brom last season and is on course to match those impressive numbers with Everton, already netting 10 league goals this term, more than Chelsea strikers Samuel Eto'o, Fernando Torres and Demba Ba.

Mourinho remains unconvinced that he made a mistake in allowing Lukaku to leave last summer, reportedly ruling out any chance of a new contract or first-team future as he moves on to other strike targets.

The Daily Mail believe that Lukaku is up for sale in order to pave the way for either Monaco marksman Radamel Falcao or Atletico Madrid predator Diego Costa.

Chelsea have Lukaku under contract until 2016, which gives them plenty of time to ponder the player's future, but with this summer's World Cup looming large Mourinho may decide to cash in during the close season on of Europe's most feared young forwards.
