Lukaku wants clarity on Chelsea future

Romelu Lukaku wants to know where his future lies, ESPN has reported, with the Belgium striker either wanting to stay at Chelsea or get a permanent move elsewhere.

Lukaku has spent the last two seasons away from Stamford Bridge, first with West Bromwich Albion and later Everton, scoring a combined 33 goals in 71 games - 17 in 38 for the Baggies and 16 in 33 for the Toffees.

The 21-year-old moved to Chelsea from Anderlecht in 2011 but has made only 15 appearances for the Blues, without scoring, but is open to a future at his parent club. But, Lukaku added, if Jose Mourinho doesn’t see him as a Chelsea player, he wants to be allowed to leave.

“What I don't want is to be loaned out,” he went on. “I am 21 and I have been loaned for the last two seasons. Thibaut Courtois was loaned for three seasons and will be without doubt the first-choice Chelsea goalkeeper.

“And Kevin De Bruyne has been transferred permanently to Wolfsburg. They are free in their heads - it is not my case. That would free me totally.”

It’s been suggested that Atletico Madrid are keen to sign the forward and while Lukaku is aware of interest from other clubs, he doesn’t have a preferred destination other than to join an ambitious team. “I don't know - there are several clubs that are interested,” he confirmed.

“I need to make a good decision to reach the absolute top. It is a dream for every attacker. I want to show what I can do and play in the Champions League with a big club.

“The decision will soon be taken. I have some ideas but we will have to see what is best for the clubs. I don't want to negotiate before the clubs have come to an agreement.”
