Chelsea could scupper £65m Man United deal with clever clauses

lukaku99112When Romelu Lukaku was sold for £28m to Everton back in 2014, few in the Transfer Tavern would have imagined the Belgian striker could be touted for a potential return to West London.

The deal was lauded within our four walls by the Blues fans who frequent in their droves, though that very same rowdy bunch have been excited following reports in the Daily Mail that the 22-year old could well be brought back.

It is claimed that a number of clauses inserted into the deal to take him to Merseyside almost two years ago could see Chelsea nab the striker for a reduced fee.

Such is the nature of his impressive form this season, the former Anderlecht ace has been linked with a number of top clubs across Europe.

Manchester Untied and Bayern Munich have been mooted as potential landing spots and the Toffees will reportedly ask for as much as £65m to prize him away.

However, a range of performance based incentives are believed to have been inserted within the club deal the Goodison Park outfit reached to initially buy him.

Winning the FA Cup is thought to be one of those clauses.

Now, the Blues could supplement any money owed to them in an effort to sign their former player at a reduced fee.

Is Lukaku really worth £65m to any club?
