Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku now feels that he is ready for a regular role on the big stage after having impressed on loan spells at Everton and West Brom in the last couple of seasons, reports the Guardian.
The 21-year old’s Blues future still hangs in the balance, but he is mulling over his next destination if he is let go by the West Londoners.
The Belgian starlet is plotting a break from football following the World Cup, and wants to decide his future when he returns from his holiday. Lukaku did hint that he wants to move to a big club capable of winning titles, and was quoted saying in the Guardian recently, “I’m 21 but I think I’m experienced enough now. I’ve played a lot of games and scored a lot of goals and now I want to win titles and become one of the best. I have a few ideas but we’ll see. I have to have discussions first and have to think about it. I want to go home and then I will decide. It will be soon.”
Chelsea meanwhile, are reportedly keen on selling their young striker as he could fetch them upwards of £25 million on the transfer market after his successful exploits with Everton last season. Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho does not believe that Lukaku is the real deal anymore, and after a much publicised spat with the striker last season, he might very well take the money on offer for him and sign a new striker.
