Super agent Mino Raiola has said that Everton manager Roberto Martinez told him that the club would be willing to sell him should a ‘good offer’ come along, the Daily Mail reports.
The Mail claim that Lukaku has been linked with a £40m move to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain, and Raiola has claimed that the deal can now go ahead with the manager’s blessing.
In an interview with French radio station Radio Monte Carlo (via Mail) Raiola said: “Lukaku to PSG? We had a discussion with Martinez, he said he would let him leave Everton if a good offer comes in.
“But talking about the transfer window now makes no sense.”
Martinez previously rejected talk that he got together with the 22-year-old’s agent to discuss an exit from Goodison Park, but denied that he is worried about Raiola’s reputation of garnering big moves for his clients.
“He has changed his agent, yes, but we are not concerned, no. Rom is entitled to do that,” the Everton manager said in April.
“Everyone speaks about the colourful character that Mino Raiola is but he has a lot of players who are very much people who are happy to stay at one club.
“I dealt with Mino Raiola at Wigan and not many people know that he had Danny de Ridder or Vladimir Weiss, players who have been happy to stay at a club.
“I don’t think there is anything to read into that.”
