Lukaku hopes for Chelsea return
Romelu Lukaku has said he would be happy to stay at Chelsea, describing the club as the biggest in the Premier League, according to ESPN.
Lukaku has spent the last two seasons away from Stamford Bridge, first at West Bromwich Albion before spending last term at Everton. He has scored a combined 33 goals in 71 appearances for the Baggies and the Toffees - 17 in 38 games for Albion and 16 in 33 for Everton.
The 21-year-old has told Belgian publication Het Nieuwsblad that he wants his future settled as it is still unknown if he will remain at Chelsea next season, but wants the World Cup out of the way first. “It would be nice to get clarity beforehand, but that will not happen, so I'm completely focused on the World Cup,” he said.
“You know, I still have a two-year contract at the biggest club in England, because that's Chelsea. So I still hope to play there. Chelsea have a good coach.
“I have been working hard on my game over the past few months and everything seems to be coming out now. I have a good feeling about [the World Cup].”
Lukaku moved to Chelsea from Anderlecht in 2011 but has only played 15 times for the club, failing to score in any of his appearances.
