Lukaku Wanted by Atletico!

The ongoing saga of where Romelu Lukaku will be playing his club football could be solved in the next ten days.

The press is reporting that Atletico Madrid are keen to take the 21 year-old Belgian international on a season long loan.

Furthermore, Atletico Madrid officials are in London next week, to finalize the 32 million deal that will bring Diego Costa to Stamford Bridge, looking to tempt Chelsea into letting them have Lukaku on loan for next season.

It remains to be seen whether they are successful or whether Chelsea would be happy to park Lukaku for another season as opposed to selling him.

We`ll report back whenever we hear any further news on the subject matter.

Some reports suggest that Chelsea wouldn't allow any loan deal for him. Let's wait and see.
BOTUM
And because it's yet another Lukaku article, expect 'sell Lukaku brigade' to hit the ground running. Whatever it's the club will find a solution.
BOTUM
Botum: Yes, Sell Him haha
StamfordDLion
He has two years on his contract. Just sell him. What's the point of sending him out on loan. At the end of next season, if we have to sell him, we won't be getting a good sum. Sell him NOW.
StamfordDLion
@StamforDLion, i am not against selling Lukaku coz it's clear Jose doesn't rate him but then again i think some of us have been rather harsh on him to be honest, especially you. He may have had one appaling gesture after being substituted plus playing crap for Belgium but hey guys, it's becoming like a personal conflict.
BOTUM
What about his transgressions of the past few weeks?
StamfordDLion
"You know Chelsea: every year they buy a new top striker," he said. "I have to play a good World Cup. That's very interesting for all the players looking for a transfer, and I must be one of them. Chelsea know my point of view." Romelu Lukaku "I remember me coming into the dressing room last year and seeing Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba and going: 'Whoah! What's happening here?' "But no problem. Many clubs are interested in me and at this stage I have to look to myself. "I have to play a good World Cup. That's very interesting for all the players look
StamfordDLion
He Forgets that he is a CHELSEA EMPLOYEE and Chelsea pays him WAGES
StamfordDLion
He is quoted as saying by Sky Italia: "I'm proud of Juventus' interest in me, but I'm just thinking of Belgium for now."
StamfordDLion
Let Atletico pay the 6m they owe for TC...then we can talk about Lukaku...I prefer to keep Lukaku as the 2nd striker, but if he is not interested in fighting for place, then he should be given the malouda treatment...Selling him for anything less than 32m is waste...
Blu_run
No more deals with At.Madrid hereafter...Lets finish the business of Luiz Felipe, Costa and say good bye for them.
Blu_run
I would recommend a direct swap between Costa & Lukaku....
Blu_run
^last choice*
Blu_run
Your rants are becoming boring stamford, you have made your point known to all, it seems you have personal issues with lukaku, none of your rants here will change whatever decision the club will make. Lukaku this lukaku that, jeez
oscarr
@Blu_run, i totally agree with you. Those ********s are greedy, arrogant and selfish. They want everything for themselves. I hate the Courtois saga. It stinks. We should cut ties with them. No favours at all.
BOTUM
oscarr: Are my so called Lukaku Rants Same as your Jose Rants?
StamfordDLion
People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

The Mosquitos are here again.
KAKUfrank
What's all the fuss about,it's so clear he's not good enough for Chelsea.
THEBREEZE
Reports that the Costa/Luis deal agreed with Lukaku going the other way ..but not sure whether its a permanent or loan deal http://www.chelseadaft.org/2014/06/reports-52m-agreed-as-chelsea-striker.html?
Blue_Mel
Blue_Mel: I hope we are selling him.
StamfordDLion
Lukaku to stay and play when Costa flops.
foreign_viewer
As long as he understands that a team like Chelsea needs more than 1 good striker. So if he is willing to fight to play for Chelsea let him stay. The not so smart kid needs to understand when we buy a new striker that by no means means that he will be automatically shut out as last season is a perfect example if he had stayed and not forced a loan move. And lol at the freedom of speech on VC, very selective. And once again lol at KAKU.
BlueMIA
This Lukaku saga has to end. I just wish Jose or the club put out a statement of some sort, something similar to what Jose did in Courtois' case.
syed230183_chelseafc
Spot on @oscarr! Tell it to it.
McQuinnChels
Not so smart kid describes who Lukaku is exactly. Mourinho was ready to bring him under his wings last season but he spoilt his Chelsea career by himself and his choice of words. Anyway, I never wanted him at #CFC and I'm happy now that he has chased himself out. Trust Mourinho to get a decent money out of him!!!!

We are not permitted to talk like that Dex.

Agreed with you @syed, this Lukaku posts are not only boring but seriously divisive among the vital chelsea community. Just like the Mikel articles the moment Lukaku's picture is displayed, expect to see armed pro & anti Lukaku forces arguing with passion, facts & worse still taking exceptions in their arguments. I guess all groups have made their points, iam not a moderator anyway but enjoy making peace between parties, so peace, peace, please! The fact remains: 1. The lad still has 2yrs left in his contract, 2. He talked way too much thus attracting all the hate, 3. He is still so young & believe has time to mend his ways if the board or manager deem fit, 4. Lets eschew bitterness over such & allow the board to decide the best way possible to any of our players not just Lukaku alone. Lets have that little patience hopefully the coastline will be clear very soon as no player is indispensable, if Lamps & Drogs can move on during their playing days who else can't? So lets wait for official action over this saga hopefully the board are reading our contributions, i mean positive contributions from true fans. KTBFFH!!!
Jerry Blues
I wonder how the reaction would be if the young man didn't make too much noise about himself. Would @StamforD Lion et al still show such passion about their sell Lukaku argument?

The lad needs a fresh start somewhere else. T'would be a relief for all involved...

BOTUM: I have been Turned Off by Lukaku's Unprofessional and Petulant Yapping. This is the main reason why I want him out of the club. Let him build his career in some other club that will make him their first striker. Rather have players in the club who appreciate the club and have respect for their team mates THAN players who will Stink the dressing room.
StamfordDLion
(I wonder how the reaction would be if the young man didn't make too much noise about himself. Would @StamforD Lion et al still show such passion about their sell Lukaku argument?) I doubt StamfordDLion et al would be calling for him to be shipped out of the club.
