Romelu Lukaku

Chelsea handed transfer blow as forward prefers Man United transfer

United move

Chelsea could be about to face a huge issue this summer, as it seems the Blues may be set to lose out on a deal for Romelu Lukaku.

The former Chelsea forward has been heavily linked with a move to Antonio Conte’s side, yet it seems his camp would rather see him make a move to Manchester United, who are labouring over a deal for Alvaro Morata.

Jose Mourinho did want to land a forward far earlier in the summer, yet Ed Woodward is taking a huge amount of time finalising a deal.

 

Rooney gone

One thing that is set to happen this summer is Wayne Rooney leaving for Everton, and a deal thought to be nearing completion.

There are even reports the forward will miss out on United’s pre-season tour in order to complete the deal, meaning signing a forward is becoming ever more important to Jose Mourinho.
