It’s no longer news that Chelsea are interested in bringing back Everton striker Romelu Lukaku to Stamford Bridge this summer.
Premier League rivals Manchester United are also interested in signing the Belgian striker but the Blues lead the race for the Everton striker.
However, a report on Daily Mirror claim Manchester United are ready to use Wayne Rooney as a makeweight in a sensational move for Romelu Lukaku. Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho believes he can hijack Chelsea’s bid for Lukaku if Rooney is used as a makeweight in the deal for Lukaku.
Everton are reportedly desperate to see Rooney return to Goodison Park, with Everton willing to shatter their wage structure to sign Rooney and Manchester United are hoping that could be the key to landing Lukaku ahead of Chelsea.
Even though Chelsea fans are divided about Chelsea’s interest in Lukaku, most Chelsea fans want Lukaku to return to Stamford Bridge.
Michael Emenalo, Antonio Conte and co would have to act fast before we lose Lukaku to Manchester United.
