According to reports in the Daily Mail on Saturday, Chelsea target and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku dropped a hint about his future after being pictured playing football on a Chelsea branded pitch while on holiday in Los Angeles.
The Belgium international has been heavily linked with a return to Stamford Bridge this summer after declaring he wants to be featuring in the Champions League on a regular basis, but he took to his personal Twitter account to speak out on the story.
Smh… hearing all this BS again.. its just a 5 a side game people! Some of you need to chill 😄✌🏿

While the rumours of a move away from Goodison Park for the 24-year-old – who scored 25 Premier League goals last season – continue in the media, the Belgian has moved to quash rumours that the latest video of him is relevant to his future.
Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on Lukaku’s comments via social media, and while many believe that it is a sign that he will be joining them this summer, others do not want him to return to Stamford Bridge.
