International

Lukaku Eyes Chelsea Exit

Romelu Lukaku has once again come out and revealed that he would like to leave Chelsea after the World Cup.

The Belgium international spent last season on loan at Everton, where he grabbed 15 goals in 31 Premier League appearances for the Goodison Park outfit and Roberto Martinez will be keen to sign him on a permanent basis.

The 21 year old arrived at Stamford Bridge in 2011 but never really settled at the club while claiming that 'many clubs’ are interested in his signature.

"You know Chelsea, every year they buy a new top striker," Lukaku said.

"I remember me coming into the dressing room last year and seeing Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba and going: 'Whoah! What’s happening here?'

"But it's no problem. Many clubs are interested in me.

"At this stage I have to look to myself. I have to play a good World Cup.

"That's very interesting for all the players looking for a transfer. And I must be one of them. Chelsea know my point of view."

Lukaku will be leading the line for Belgium in Brazil, with many tipping them as possible dark-horses for the tournament.
