Chelsea star set for surprise new deal despite concerns

Romelu Lukaku Chelsea fans are looking rather surprised here in the Football Transfer Tavern today.

This is after our landlord tells them about the latest claim coming from the Daily Mirror who seem to think Romelu Lukaku could be in line for a new deal.

The Blues have sent the Belgian forward out on loan for the last couple of seasons and we did not think that manager Jose Mourinho was very convinced by the player but there are others at Chelsea who are.

Lukaku may yet be offered a new deal to remain at Chelsea with the Blues board seriously considering extending his stay at Stamford Bridge.

However, he would then have to face another loan spell away from the Blues next season with Mourinho seeing no future for the player whilst he remains in charge at the club.

One of our punters notes that whilst Lukaku may have had a poor World Cup for Belgium, he still has a fair few suitors and we cannot imagine offers, especially for a loan move, being in short supply.

Chelsea fans. What do you make of this U-turn? Will Lukaku still make a permanent move away this summer or will it be a loan deal yet again? Let us know your thoughts below.
