Chelsea supporters are not exactly impressed with the claim from The Sun here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
The publication seem to be under the impression that Manchester City have made Romelu Lukaku a top target this summer as they look to replace Edin Dzeko.
The Belgian forward has of course been on loan at Everton this season, and has impressed everyone apart from the one man he needs to make an impact upon the most – Jose Mourinho.
That of course means that he looks to be on his way out of Stamford Bridge in the summer – but Chelsea have thus far refused to consider selling him to a title rival.
As our landlord notes over a game of pool, allowing him to go to City would be doing exactly that, and could well come back to haunt the Blues in spectacular fashion.
The Blues are already seeing former forward Daniel Sturridge excel for Liverpool, and it would not go down well if Lukaku followed suit!
There are of course a host of clubs looking to land the powerful ex-Anderlecht forward, but we cannot understand why Chelsea do not want him back in their first team plans!
Do you think Chelsea would be making a massive mistake if they allowed Lukaku to leave for City? Let us know your thoughts below.
