Romelu Lukaku has told Sky Sports that he is ready and prepared to return to Chelsea in the Summer.
The Belgian confirmed that there was no rift with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and that he insisted he left in this previous Summer to play more football and return as ‘one of the best strikers in the league’. Lukaku maintained that Mourinho wanted him to stay but in the end was convinced for him to leave and accepted he needed more development.
Rom talked in more depth about what he wanted to do over the course of the next two years:
“I still want to become one of the best strikers in the world,” he expressed. “I hope that you can put me in line with Edinson Cavani, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Robin Van Persie, Luis Suarez and Robert Lewandowski in two years’ time.
I analyse them all. I look at their movements. The presence of Ibrahimovic, the left foot of Van Persie, the right foot of Cavani, the movement of Lewandowski and the dribbles of Suarez.
“He is that unpredictable. In three years of the Premier League I haven’t seen anyone doing what he did.”
Lukaku has scored 8 goals so far this season for Everton.
