Father of Chelsea transfer target would rather see his son at Manchester United

Posted by

Romelu Lukaku‘s father Roger has named the two clubs he would love to see sign his son, and reported suitors Chelsea are not one of them.

Speaking to Belgian paper HLN, Lukaku sr. has identified two clubs which he believes to be ‘very suitable’ for his son.

The first is Manchester United, while the second is Bayern Munich, both suggestions that do make sense considering Roger’s rationale.

“I see two clubs that are very suitable for him, Manchester United and Bayern Munich. Man United are a team under construction, which does not have a genuine striker,” the Everton hitman’s father began.

“Bayern is a machine which he could run, provided Lewandowski goes to PSG or elsewhere,” he continued.

“With the playing style of Bayern, Romelu will score a lot of goals.”

Chelsea are also understood to be considering a move for the Belgian international, having sold him to Everton for £28 million in 2014 [fee via BBC Sport].

According to The Sun, prospective new Chelsea coach Antonio Conte has put the attacker at the top of his summer transfer wish list, and sees the ex-West Bromwich Albion hitman as the ideal man around whom to build his attack.

It’s easy to see why the forward is so desired, having scored 18 goals in 29 Premier League appearances to date this season, contributing six assists in the process.

“Returning to Chelsea would make everything complicated,” Lukaku sr. added.

Chelsea currently have Diego Costa, Loic Remy, Radamel Falcao and Alexandre Pato as their striking options, although it remains to be seen which of the quartet (if any) will still be at the club next season.
