You may recall back in 2017 the BBC reported that both Chelsea and Manchester United had bids accepted by Everton to sign Lukaku, with the Belgian ultimately moving to Old Trafford.
Duncan Castles, speaking on ‘The Transfer Window‘ podcast, then claimed that Lukaku actually split with agent Mino Raiola over his failure to agree a move back to Chelsea for him.
With Raiola now gone, and Lukaku a better striker than he’s ever been, could we see this one materialise?
