Lukaku says his future remains uncertain.
Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku says his future is out of his hands but has ruled out a move to a Tottenham.
The 20-year-old enjoyed a fantastic season on loan at West Brom, scoring 17 Premier League goals including a hat-trick from the bench Sunday’s 5-5 draw with Man United.
The Belgian international is expecting to return to Chelsea but reports have suggested Blues boss-in-waiting Jose Mourinho will loan out Lukaku for another season.
“It is out of my hands now,” Lukaku told the Express & Star.
“I will go to the internationals, go on holiday with my friends and my missus and come back and train hard with my dad and then go to pre-season with Chelsea.
“We will see what happens. This club will always have a place in my heart. It’s the club that put me in the spotlight and re-launched my career.”
Meanwhile, Lukaku has confirmed that he will not be allowed to join one of Chelsea’s direct competitors this summer, making a move to Spurs unlikely.
The north London outfit are in need of a new striker this summer but the former Anderlecht star, who joined Chelsea for around £10m in summer 2011, confirmed in a video on Sportza.be the Blues would not sell to a rival.
