Lukaku has phenomenal for Everton again this season, scoring 25 goals but has failed to extend his deal with Ronald Koeman’s side, insisting that the club must match his ambition if he is extend his contract.
A number of big clubs are interested in his services including English giants, Chelsea and Manchester United, but the player will prefer the former having played at Stamford Bridge earlier in his career, but failed woefully and wants to prove doubters wrong.
Raiola, the man also representing Manchester United duo, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, though is keen to do business with United once again, as he believes the commercial edge the Red Devils have over Chelsea could help his player’s brand.
The clubs that can sign Lukaku as claimed by Raiola are yet unknown, yet it offers insight into the fact that he can leave for less than the £100m being mooted by Everton for the former Anderlecht youngster.
Since 2012/13, Lukaku has scored 85 Premier League goals, only behind Sergio Aguero is and is on course to reach the 100 goal mark next season should he stay in the division. The striker is a burly, physical striker, who, dspsite his huge body frame, ie extremely explosive and can score all sorts of goals.
