Chelsea decide Romelu Lukaku future

Chelsea are prepared to reject any loan offers for striker Romelu Lukaku as they seek a permanent departure for the Belgium international, a report has revealed.

The Blues have been looking to offload Lukaku since his bust-up with former manager Thomas Tuchel but, with no suitors prepared to offer a significant fee, have instead allowed the 31-year-old to spend the last two seasons out on loan with Inter and Roma.

When he joined Roma last year, it was agreed that Lukaku would be made available for £37m this summer as he enters the final two years of his contract, and BBC Sport state that Chelsea are prepared to stick to that asking price.
