Chelsea Transfer News: Latest Rumours on Romelu Lukaku Before Summer Window

Romelu Lukaku

Chelsea and Manchester United will reportedly battle it out for Everton forward Romelu Lukaku this summer, with the Belgian potentially costing a world-record transfer fee of £100 million.

According to Neil Fissler of the Sunday Express, romelu Lukaku has told the Toffees he will not sign a new contract at the club amid interest from Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho, managers of the Blues and Red Devils, respectively.

With two years left on his current deal, Everton are expected to cash in on the former Chelsea star, making the most out of the situation.

Per the report, Real Madrid‘s Alvaro Morata was previously a target for both Chelsea and United, and with the Spaniard now likely to end up at AC Milan, the market for top attacking options is already thinning before summer has even begun.

 

Lukaku will be a popular target due to his Premier League experience―despite being just 24 years old, he has starred in England’s top division for some time and bagged a tremendous amount of goals. This past season, he finished with 25 in the league, more than any Chelsea or United striker.

Diego Costa was the Blues’ star man in front of goal this season, and even he would welcome the Everton man with open arms, per Kristof Terreur of HLN:
