Chelsea do not appear to have given up hope of signing Everton talisman Romelu Lukaku this summer.
According to the Independent, Everton expect the Premier League champions to ‘aggressively’ challenge Manchester United in the race to sign Lukaku.
As per the Independent, Lukaku is willing to move to Old Trafford this summer, and reunite with Jose Mourinho, who showed little faith in him during his time at Chelsea and opted to cash-in.
The paper believe that £75M could be enough to see the deal go over the line, but Chelsea will not roll over and allow Lukaku to join their direct rivals.
The Independent report that Chelsea are adamant that the deal is not done, and could lodge a huge bid in a last-ditch attempt to steal Lukaku from under Mourinho’s nose.
By the sound of things, it could well be too late for the Blues to make a move. Ultimately, only time will tell who Lukaku is playing for next season.
