Lukaku`s Exit Clause Gives Chelsea Hope
As you`d expect following his revelation that he`d not be signing the new contract placed on the table by Everton, Romelu Lukaku features heavily in the news this Sunday.
The 23-year-old striker, who got on the score-sheet again yesterday as Everton beat Hull City 4-0, is once again mentioned in the same sentence as Chelsea Football Club.
The good folk of the Daily Mail, are of the opinion that Chelsea lead the race to sign the Belgian international.
Those thoughts expressed by Lukaku, relating to unfinished business at Chelsea, could be behind their judgement call.
However whilst some pundits are pointing out that Everton don`t have to sell the player this summer as he still has two-years of his current contract to run, the Mirror, has unearthed what could be a defining factor when it comes to Lukaku`s future.
The referenced tabloid source is reporting that Lukaku has an agreement with the club that suggests that Everton would not stand in his way if he they cannot offer Champions League football next season.
