Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are crowding around the bar to hear what our landlord has to say about the news coming from Metro.
The publication seem to think that Blues striker Romelu Lukaku could well be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer.
As one of our Blues regulars notes over a pint, Lukaku has not impressed for Belgium at the World Cup and Chelsea will now probably look to offload him instead of giving him a chance to prove himself.
His future has been pondered upon numerous times and it seems as thought he will never make it at Stamford Bridge with the ex-Anderlecht forward adamant that playing time is what he needs most.
He spoke about his future at Chelsea and made it clear he had not yet spoken with anyone about next season, claiming: “No, not yet. It depends what is the best for me, where the most ambition is and where is the best place for me to do develop as a young player.”
As one of our punters notes, he also made it very clear that he wants to win titles, and with both Tottenham and Arsenal being admirers of the player, it seems that Lukaku has not ruled out signing for one of the Blues’ major London rivals.
He added: “I want to be somewhere where I can play my best football and hopefully win titles. There are choices to make. Things like that happen in football and I’m confident I will make the right choice.”
Chelsea fans. Would you be willing to see Lukaku leave for a rival club at the right price or do you think that the young forward deserves a chance at Stamford Bridge? Let us know your thoughts below.
