Lukaku wants to leave Chelsea on permanent transfer to Champions League club [The Mirror]

Romelu Lukaku has told Chelsea that he wants to leave the club on a permanent transfer, according to newspaper The Mirror.

The big Belgian striker has spent the last two campaigns on loan at West Brom and Everton respectively, impressing in both spells.

But now Lukaku feels he has earned the opportunity to play for a club playing in the Champions League and appears to have accepted that club won’t be Chelsea.

Lukaku initially failed to impress at the World Cup but eventually came good, coming off the bench to destroy the USA in extra time in their second round clash.
