Chelsea Transfer News: £20m Lukaku Deal Off

By on July 16, 2011

Chelsea’s move for Romelu Lukaku has been put on hold after Anderlecht demanded £30million for the Belgian wonderkid. The 18-year old was expected to move to West London after Chelsea placed the striker at the top of their wish list this summer.

The player himself has already declared his desire to play in the Premiership and admits to being a “Chelsea fan” but a deal appears to be hanging by a thread after the Belgian outfit demanded an extra £10million for talented forward.

The Blues thought they had secured Lukaku for around £20million but Anderlecht representatives have insisted Lukaku is worth £10million more than Chelsea are prepared to pay.

According to reports in the football bunker Chelsea have suggested a cooling off period and will revisit the deal in August.

    i don’t think that guy is good enough to that level, what i am going to say is that if the guy is coming to collect what we are dreaming of then let theme give him more that that after all the 50 million as not do any thing for us,all what i am trying to say is that the money is to much for him, you can imaging the price arsenal want to pay for him so why are we going to pay him that amount

    Anderlecht are pissing in the wind! Roman hasn’t even offered £30m for Moderic yet. We should walk away and let’s see them come crawling back when the player himself goes crazy at them. Then we should go back with no more than £18m to teach the greedy bastards a lesson!

    Damm all clubs chairmen who think kids who is not up to 18 years will cost £30m or £45m. I bet you mr. chairman lukaku will become world best in anderlent next season keep hold of him. Think twice mr. £20m is a good price 4 ur kid. Come to think of it is lukaku better than Sturridge?

    PLEASE, FANS ARE ANGRY 4 DELAY IN SIGNING. INITIALY, IT WAS NEYMAR, MODRIC, PASTORE ETC. WE WANT TO HEAR THAT A DEAL HAS BEEN STRUCK JUST LIKE OTHER TOP EPL CLUBS HAS DONE. WE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THE RUMOURS. THE EARLIER WE SIGN THE BETTER WE SETTLE DOWN TO TRAINING BECAUSE SEASON WILL SOON KICK OFF. WHEN WILL AVB PLAN ON HIS GAME AND PLAYERS TO USE.
