Romelu Lukaku has been making ‘Come And Get Me Pleas’ all season, and now he’s really upped the ante in his attempt to engineer a move away from Everton.
Ever since making his move to Everton a permanent one last summer, Lukaku has looked like he regretted the decision, and has openly and candidly spoken of his desire to get back to a ‘big club’.
The Belgian striker has signed up with Super-Agent Mino Raiola, arguably the second most powerful agent in world football behind Jorge Mendes.
Raiola is an excellent businessman, and has been behind the countless multi-million moves made by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mario Balotelli in their globetrotting careers (as well as catering for the next big thing, Paul Pogba!)
Lukaku linking up with Raiola is a further tacit sign that he wants away from Goodison this summer, and with Raiola now in charge of his career, it’s pretty much a sure thing Lukaku will be wearing a different shirt to Everton’s next year.
Raiola gave an interview with Belgian paper Sudpresse bigging up his new client:
‘I don’t know if you realize, in Belgium, how good Lukaku is.
He has all the necessary qualities: physical, technical and human.
If Pogba is the future best midfielder in the world, then Lukaku is the Pogba of strikers. Yes: he’s going to become one of the best strikers in Europe.’
