There are raised eyebrows here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the latest news concerning Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku filters through from The Telegraph.
According to them, the Belgian forward is desperate to leave Stamford Bridge this summer and in order to get his coveted move, he will be doing his best to impress in Brazil.
One of our Blues fans in the tavern notes that although that is a shame, Chelsea do not have to sell Lukaku should they wish to keep him.
Even if they decide that keeping a player who does not want to wear the shirt is pointless, a good World Cup performance will certainly add a fair bit of cash to his market value, meaning it is win-win situation for Jose Mourinho and his Blues side.
Lukaku was asked about his future and noted: “Many clubs are interested in me. At this stage, I have to look to myself. I have to play a good World Cup.
“That’s very interesting for all the players looking for a transfer. And I must be one of them. Chelsea know my point of view.”
The Belgian international also claimed that the Blues buy a new forward each summer and given Chelsea are in talks with Diego Costa, he is not wrong there!
Chelsea fans. Do you think that given the chance, Lukaku could become the next legend at the club? Let us know your thoughts below.
