No Loan for Lukaku!

No Loan for Lukaku!

The Lukaku music has been resounding everywhere. Everyone has aired his or her view and this is mine.

Lukaku (the media practitioner) is or was touted to be the next D² (Didier Drogba), but his attitude really sulks. He has been in bed with the media ever since he went on loan at Everton and has refused to show respect to his employers.

We all know what he has said and I don't have to go back on that. There were rumours he is being prepared to be loaned for one more season to get ripped. The likes of Atletico Madrid, Everton, Tottenham, Juventus and Wolfsburg are believed to be interested in his services but Chelsea and Mourinho (including me) are unwilling to give our 21 year old striker another loan opportunity.

Lukaku has had successful loan spells at WBA and Everton. His agent confirmed this by saying;

"Chelsea doesn't want to loan him out, he has two years left on his contract and we would normally look at extending it."

The talent he has is incredible but instead of waiting to do that at the Bridge, he`S rather marketing himself. He claimed he is a complete striker and is not ready to play a second fiddle.

The signing of Costa has enraged him as he ruminates he can lead the Blue army into glory, so there is no need to sign Costa. His own words claim that we shouldn't have signed Costa because he can do all what Costa can do and even more.

Now he is a complete striker (as he claimed) and I will want Chelsea to give him the opportunity to prove his completeness on the playing field. I don't doubt his qualities and nobody can doubt that, however, he is still young and has to keep mute and do the talking on the blue pitch.

One thing I think he is forgetting is Chelsea is not like WBA or Everton that you come and shine at once; you have to learn and adapt with hard work. Torres was one of the best at Atletico and Liverpool but is nowhere to be found at Chelsea. Drogba had to use one or two seasons to adapt and that is what I will recommend for Lukaku.

The guy has great talent and I would want Jose to give him the opportunity to show that. There is no need sending him on loan even if he signs a new contract. Why? Because he is better than Torres and Ba combined. Torres has been a liability to us and we have to give Lukaku the chance to be our second striker.

Hmmm.....well not a bad idea, but whichever way he must be made to commit his long time future to CFC first before embarking on any journey.

Let him go on loan 2 a CL team where he wil compete with d best & also experince playin almost 60 games per season & see how complete he is & see how he wil cope. But b4 dat let him sign new contract.

“I want to go on holiday first and rest with my parents and then we will see,” Lukaku said. “I want to be somewhere where I can play my best football and hopefully win titles. It’s up to me to work hard but there are choices to make. Things like that happen in football and I’m confident I will make the right choice. I’m looking at everything but first of all I want to go on holiday and relax a little bit.”

“I’m 21 but I think I’m experienced enough now. I’ve played a lot of games and scored a lot of goals and now I want to win titles and become one of the best. I have a few ideas but we’ll see. I have to have discussions first and have to think about it. I want to go home and then I will decide. It will be soon.”

He Decides OR Chelsea Decides?
07/07/2014 05:48:00
If he wants to leave on Loan, simple step is to sign a contract extension. And he should be sent to teams in CL. (Monaco is a good option, if they end up selling Falcao to RM)
07/07/2014 05:52:00
Personally, I prefer to keep him along with Torres. Costa, Lukaku, Torres are the 3 strikers who can lead us next season.
07/07/2014 05:53:00
First of all, he needs to sign a new contract. Than his best option would be, if he went to At. Mad. on loan, presumably, they don't sign any new strikers and they reduce Felipes fee under 15m pounds. Otherwise keep him with Torres and Costa for our three strikers.

The Guardian - Asked if he had spoken yet to anyone at Chelsea since handing in a transfer request last summer, a move that sealed a loan switch to Everton, Lukaku said: “No, not yet. It depends what is the best for me, where the most ambition is and where is the best place for me to develop".
07/07/2014 07:18:00
Let's dispel one part, no club has more ambition than Chelsea to win trophies.
07/07/2014 07:19:00
So this is all about him once again. He will make the choices, despite his contract with Chelsea. That's fine, every player has those wishes and want to play their best football, but why does he have to make it so public, like he is not sure he can get what he wants from his contracted club. It seems to me that he will only be happy when it is him who bangs in the winning goal to win whatever top trophy, he can't feel part of the team's success unless he contributes directly (he has said this in the past). He obviously does not trust Chelsea or Jose. Why not just say: 'I will go back to my home club and discuss my future with them'. Simples.

Can anyone say his WC was a success, or a failure? I know what I would say, and I said it before the WC. Flop.
07/07/2014 07:32:00
Mind you, Hazard was an even bigger flop.
07/07/2014 07:34:00
All things considered, I still think the best thing is to sell him (whilst he has some value) with a buy-back clause. Best for everybody.
07/07/2014 07:41:00
oh not again Lukaku. Why cant this kid keep his mouth zipped until he has clear view on what chelsea has for him. He keeps talking about how good he is (yes, the entire world saw ur performance at the world cup). Honestly, it looks like he has his mind somewhere fixed already and he is mooting for his move. If I were to guess, he has his eyes for Juventus & will push Chelsea to make him offer to them as part of Pogba deal.
07/07/2014 08:50:00
Its going to be interesting to see the 'healthy debate' going to happen here after his recent interview :-)
07/07/2014 08:51:00
If he is not going to sign the contract, we should sell him this summer to some team outside epl with a buyback clause.
07/07/2014 08:52:00
No contact from Chelsea since september ??? How is that even possible ??? Someone just can't stop feeding the media excatly what they need to hear..........
07/07/2014 10:03:00
this lukaku has started again with spewing his ideology to the media about cfc ... about time to take tough action on him ... this noob will ruin the reputation of cfc if this keeps up anyways jose should end this up asap before season starts so that we can get any backup strikers whether be it bamford or others.... this situation can get pretty bad if our other youngsters get such ideas n start revolting in furture
07/07/2014 10:12:00
Sell Torres or send him out on loan for the remainder of his contract. Sign Remy.
