Jose Mourinho doesn’t rate on-loan Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, wants to sell Belgian in the summer [Mail on Sunday]
- Updated: March 16, 2014
The Mail on Sunday’s Rob Shepherd has penned an aggressive article jam-packed with powerful statements in support of a piece claiming Jose Mourinho wants to sell Romelu Lukaku this summer.
While most observers seem to believe Chelsea missed a trick by farming out Lukaku to Everton for the season, according to Shepherd the Special One has no regrets whatsoever.
Moreover, Mourinho is said to be so unimpressed with the in-form Belgian striker the Portuguese boss is intent on getting the forward off Chelsea’s books this summer.
According to Shepherd, Mourinho does not want to give the Belgian international striker a new deal as ” bridges have been burned” between the attacker and the coach, and the Chelsea supremo does not rate “Lukaku as a top class striker”.
Apparently “the 20-year-old has since made some cutting remarks about Mourinho – and the Chelsea boss has been scathing in response”.
The article in the Mail on Sunday closes by farting “Mourinho is intent on signing one, possibly two, world class strikers in the summer, with Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa and Radamel Falcao of Monaco well-known to be his prime targets”.
For the record, Lukaku has scored 27 goals in 35 league appearances for both West Brom and Everton over the past two seasons.
