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.
