Lukaku - No to West Ham!

I`ve absolutely no idea what is going to happen to Romelu Lukaku this summer.

I suspect that the young Belgian may well be moved on but to where remains anyone`s guess.

Although he scored 15 goals whilst on loan at Everton last season, it would appear that he may not have an immediate future at Chelsea.

Now whether the player who will be leading Belgium`s attack in the World Cup will be sold or sent out on loan again remains to be seen.

This morning though it would seem that one possible destination has been ruled out with the 21 year-old deciding, for the second summer running, West Ham United is not a destination that appeals to him.

However, the name of the Bundesliga side, Wolfsburg, does keep popping up with alarming regularity!

I guess we`ll just have to wait and see.

Better for him and Better for us. The Club and the Player need to Move On.

The way we are conducting business right now, I am confident that we will sell him for a profit and recoup the money we invested on him.

I am also confident that we will get a good second striker to compliment Costa.

He has not endeared himself to Jose and the Chelsea board it seems with his constant yapping.

Que sera sera. I which he would play for us but if i dealt with loosing mata and luiz i bet this won't be much of a big deal. Chelsea can be mean if they want to and he needs to learn that. Let him keep quiet, he is not the first kid in the world. Many have passed through his stage and many still will acting appropriately. Don't know why his dad can't shut him up though.

Maybe his Dad and Agent are Encouraging his Delusion that he is a Complete Player, Entitled to be a Number One Striker

no reason why he should leave everton and go to westham. there is nothing about football Allardici can teach him except maybe Rugby. won't even shed a tear if the club decides to let go of the Foolish one. Like David said of the Edomite in the Bible, ( His mouth/tongue has testified against him...)

Lukaku shouldn't on any teams bench. He won develop that way e.g. Kalou

And look where Kalou ended up. 27 years old and done. No potential left. Sold.

Kalou won trophies and is a CL Winner. He actually contributed to our CL campaign. Not many top players can say that they are CL Winners and played in the CL Finals. Chelsea brought him Fame and Fortune. He has always been Appreciative of Chelsea. Unlike Lukaku.

Kinky: I see the possibility of him being an important part of our future very slim. The way he yaps he is essentially alienating himself from Jose. No point keeping a Disruptive Player at the club.

He's not bigger than Chelsea and the club can do whatever it wants about the situation. However the lad has ambitions and think of himself highly. That could actually make him one of the better strikers around in future. I only have a problem on how he does so. If he did that much on the pitch, score as many goals as possible, he will get his chance. Someone will tell me he's scored goals for Everton and West Brom but that's not enough. Let him stay at Chelsea and bang in those goals to prove how good he's against the best in the world-champions league.

West Ham would be about his level, at least he would play every single week LOL!

If Benteke had been fit, he would be leading Belgium and Lukaku would be no.2

Stay at Chelsea and bang in goals? How would that be possible sitting on the bench? The bench is no good for young players.

To me looking at the above comments, it seems like another Daniel Sturidge situation. Fans slated him and wanted (so called selfish****) to leave as he demanded a forward position and more game time. We forcefully moved him away and now he is banging goals for fun and we kept Torres. I think a little patience and persistence with Lukaku will help chelsea solve the striker issue. This guy can be a beast for us and has proven himself in another Premier League teams. Though he is a bit mouthy but lot of good players are like than eg. Suarez, Rooney etc. Give the guy time and he'll prove it, shun him like we did with so many others and he'll come to bite us back. Mark my words.
