Metro have stunned punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku is a target for Real Madrid.
As one of our punters notes, given Lukaku cannot seem to convince Jose Mourinho that he is the forward for him, we are certainly shocked that a club as big as Real Madrid are sniffing around Lukaku.
The Belgian forward is reportedly a back-up option for the La Liga giants who are chasing Monaco forward Radamel Falcao.
Should they not land the Colombian international, they are determined that their back-up option will come off.
Given Chelsea have just brought Didier Drogba back to the club we are fairly sure that the Blues will be focusing on their returning hero and new boy Diego Costa up top next term – and that puts the future of Lukaku into doubt once again.
Should Real Madrid offer a decent price for the forward, one of our punters points out that Mourinho and the Blues will be happy to take it and send Lukaku to Spain in order to reignite his career.
Chelsea fans. Is Lukaku good enough for a club like Real Madrid? Should you be considering giving him another chance? Let us know your thoughts below.
