£20m Ace Confirms He’s Not Close To Chelsea Move Despite Reports

By on June 15, 2011

Teenage sensation Romelu Lukaku has confirmed his will report to pre season training with current club Anderlecht on the 24th June.

The 18-year has been heavily linked with a £20million switch to Stamford Bridge this summer, but the Belgian international reiterates a move has yet to materialise and remains focused on his school exams, he said on Twitter and Facebook:

“I read a lot in the paper about me these days. Some journalists try to sell information they don’t always know about. Please know that my current and only focus is … passing my exams.”

He continued: “After that I’ll have some holiday and will start the pre-season with RSCA [Anderlecht].”

His agent Christophe Henrotay also confirmed no talks had taken place with any Chelsea representatives:

“There has not yet been a meeting between Chelsea and Anderlecht, nothing can be concluded.” Henrotay told Belgian newspaper Het Belang van Limburg.

“Anderlecht want a lot of money for Lukaku, he costs more than two million you know – it will take more time.

“With the current state of things, Romelu will resume training on June 24 with Anderlecht.”

However Anderlecht general manager Herman van Holsbeeck has accepted defeat and knows it only a matter of time before Lukaku moves on – Van Holsbeeck told the Gazet van Antwerpen”

“I do not know if it will be Chelsea, there are many big clubs interested and we are negotiating. One thing is certain, he will not spend another year with Anderlecht.”

    Guys. Lukaku must be already in Chelsea it is just a courtesy of the football society. It is like history with de Gea he is in Manchester already but officialy he is not and asks Ferguson do not tell about that in press.

    i here by urge Abramovich to lure the Brazilian neymer to Chelsea,because he is one of a kind and that’s because we have so much humiliated for not lifting the champions league trophy and please if Chelsea should be one of the best team in the world just to win trophy’s then this are the players that could make that dream possible.neymer,lakuku,sjneider,and modric.and also nzogbia who is better of malouda and can play alongside sturridge,and i bet you Chelsea will win trophy’s and Torres would prove what he is capable of doing.

    please take this commment into consideration.

    For me it’s a good thing to know
    That media are trying to sell ther
    News and make money but certainly
    I must advice that media should be
    Very careful in speculation and I
    Love the way lukaku have stressed the
    That he have never met or speak

    With any cfc representative and
    Cfc should be fast with their
    Transfer target intact they
    Should do more and talk less
