Chelsea are keen on bringing Mario Mandzukic to the club and sending Romelu Lukaku out on a third loan spell…
Chelsea’s 21-year old Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku could be sent out on loan to Spanish champions Atletico Madrid, reports the Daily Express.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is not convinced of the Belgian’s ability to shine at Stamford Bridge for the Blues next season, despite his free scoring performances whilst on loan at West Brom and Everton in the last couple of seasons. The Portuguese boss is therefore looking to recruit £20 million rated Bayern Munich hitman Mario Mandzukic next term since the Croat could be out of favour after the arrival of Polish star Robert Lewandowski.
Mourinho though seems to have softened his stance on Lukaku and now prefers to loan him out as opposed to cashing in on him this summer. Lukaku too may be keen on another new experience in La Liga, but one wonders about his Chelsea future since he has just 2 more years left to run on his deal at Stamford Bridge.
