Lukaku claims that Chelsea will decide my future
The Belgian international has been in fine form for the Baggies following his loan arrival over the summer, notching 12 goals in all competitions.
This has led to speculation that the Midlanders are looking to extend his stay at The Hawthorns, something Lukaku could be keen on with first-team opportunities likely to be limited with the Blues.
But, the 19-year-old, who was signed by Chelsea for £18m from Anderlecht, has no idea where he will be next season, and insists that the Londoners will make the decision:
“I don’t know what Chelsea will decide. We’ll have a chat about how to build up a good career for me there.” He is quoted by Sky Sports.
“There are a lot of clever people over there and they’re seeing that I am playing in a good way.”
Lukaku went on to reveal that he is in regular contact with Chelsea, who are very impressed with his development but anxious for him to keep moving in the right direction:
“Every 10 days I have a meeting with Chelsea. Sometimes they just come and talk with me and say what I have to improve, if I go back there I have to be like this or like that.
“There is a lot to improve on. I am only 19 so I can improve loads. They will see maybe I need one more year or maybe I don’t. I have a great understanding with them.”
Lukaku has been dubbed the ‘Baby Drogba’ by some, with his physical presence and eye for goal comparable to the former Chelsea star.
