Another Lukaku Update

Another Lukaku Update

The continual speculation linking the Everton striker Romelu Lukaku to a move to Stamford Bridge could be actually harming his chances of getting his dream move.

Although Everton have put a price-tag of £100 million on the players head, speculation continues to link the striker who has 25 goals to his name, with a move to SW6.

The latest piece of transfer tittle-tattle, courtesy of the UK`s leading tabloid publication, The Sun, implies that Lukaku has told his close friends that he wants to make a return to Stamford Bridge.

Unfortunately, this continual speculation might be playing into Everton`s hands. Having already raised his price-tag, the inference is there that Chelsea may be the last club that Everton want to sell the player to.

Those at Goodison Park reacted with strong words when constant speculation linked Chelsea with a move for their promising centre-back, John Stones.

Although Chelsea upped their bid to amounts that made us all wary of doing business, Stones was eventually sold to Manchester City.

But there could be a slight difference in Lukaku`s case, whereas Stones admitted he wanted to stay in the north-west, Lukaku is chomping at the bit for a move back to SW6, believing he has unfinished business to attend to.

Another surprising twist in the tale though could still hurt Chelsea`s ambitions of recruiting the Premier League`s current top-scorer.

Speculation has also emerged, as confirmed by the Manchester Evening News, that Jose Mourinho, the very boss who never really gave Lukaku a shot at Chelsea, is interested in taking the player to Old Trafford.

The above source also happens to mention that whilst waiting for the saga to unravel, 23-year-old Lukaku has subscribed to both CFC TV and MUFC TV.

Where`s your money going when it comes to Lukaku`s next move?

100M is a better deal than 60M for Morata... Get Lukaku.

#CarefreeDaily ?? Retweeted ? ThatGed©? @ThatsGed ? Hearing off @prenno that Chelsea have 25% sell on clause on Lukaku and Everton still owe £16.4m to Chelsea. So £50m fee means EFC lose £28.9

Well if the tweet as quoted/highlighted by @11azpi is true; & the fact that subject told his close friends he wants a return to Chelsea, then I see us clear winners in this case. Drogba was last week quoted saying similar thing saying unfinished business. But be that as it may am still opposed to that price tag no, not for £100m; & what about that super agent I hate most, Mino Raiola? Until I see this deal through , I still have my doubts. KTBFFH!!!

I have not been too happy with the British media by the way they have been carrying fake news about Chelsea. I could be wrong, but it seems most of them just don't want Chelsea to succeed. Two summers ago, Chealse did all they could to signs Everton's Stones. All the media was saying that he needed to stay in Everton to develop more instead of going to Chelsea. Today, Stones is developing in MC. The way the news was being carried about a month ago, one would have thought that Chelsea had signed Bakayoko already. Then the issue died down completely and next was Hazzard being in agreement with RM. To me, this is a distraction that needs to be ignored. Our focal point now are the FA cup and the PL title.
