Romelu Lukaku is attracting interest from a whole host of European clubs, according to his father.
Roger Lukaku spoke about his son’s future and mentioned a few potential destinations:
“I see that there is interest from Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Chelsea and Manchester United.
I know his agent prefers Italy but I think he must choose Manchester United or Bayern Munich. Manchester United is a team under construction with no real focus.
Bayern is a machine where he can rotate well. The only condition is if Robert Lewandowski leaves.
Lukaku has scored 25 goals for Everton this season but the Blues find themselves languishing in 12th place.
The powerful forward has been one of the few bright spots in Everton’s dismal league campaign, and his individual brilliance sent the Merseysiders through to the first F.A Cup semi-final in four years.
The Belgian wants to fire the Blues to silverware and a more respectable league position but has lofty ambitions and said he may leave this summer in order to play in the Champions League:
“It’s time to measure me at the very top. For me, my form at Everton is currently very good. I can be top scorer of the competition, and so I want to help my team to do better, because at present, our team performance is below par.
When asked about leaving Everton in the summer, Lukaku said:
“Maybe yes. If it can.
I’m 23-years-old this summer and I’ve never played Champions League. I’m really looking for me to measure myself against the absolute top players.
All major European clubs come for me into consideration.
Everton signed Lukaku from Chelsea for a club-record fee of £28million in 2014 and would expect double that amount or more should the former Anderlecht hitman leave for pastures new.
The 22-year-old has been at Everton for three seasons since joining on loan in 2013 and has scored 61 goals in 118 games for the Toffeemen.
