Earlier this week Everton announced that they had signed Romelu Lukaku for a club record fee of £28 million to the amazement of Chelsea fans.
For the past two seasons, the Belgian had spent loans spells with West Bromwich Albion and Everton, and proved a hit at both clubs.
Coming into this season, Chelsea fans believed that Lukaku would finally don a blue shirt in London and play for them in the Premier League, but much to their disbelief Jose Mourinho saw Lukaku surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge.
The problem Jose now faces is that Lukaku has the ability to embarrass him when Chelsea face Everton. At the age of 21, Romelu has years to look forward to and improve on the already promising talent that he has.
Over the past two seasons Lukaku has scored 32 goals in just 66 Premier League appearances which is a very impressive record for a player in his very early twenties. With this record was Jose right to sell him to a very competitive League team in Everton?
This summer saw him named in the Belgium national team for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil where he scored the eventual winner against the United States to claim his first World Cup goal. With his record speaking for himself has Jose made a mistake? Could this be another one of Jose's ego bursts where he refuses to be wrong? Or is it a tactical move?
Either way Lukaku would of been more than capable of leading the Chelsea attack this season, but Mourinho saw otherwise.
