Chelsea fans react as Lukaku drops latest hint at Blues return

On Tuesday afternoon, Romelu Lukaku spoke to Belgian press whilst on international duty and all but confirmed his departure from Everton this summer.

When asked whether he could stay on Merseyside next season, the 25-year-old stated: “That’s not really an option, I think. That was quite clear.”

The Belgian also hinted at his possible destination this summer. When asked if he will return to his old club Chelsea, the striker said “No comment.
