Chelsea Target Gets Cold Feet On West London Move

By on August 2, 2011

Chelsea target Romelu Lukaku is in no rush to leave Anderlecht and has doubts on a move to West London after the signing of fellow countryman Thibaut Courtois.

“I want to go to a club where I can develop further. It’s not that I just want to be transferred to Chelsea,” he said. “At the moment I am patient. I remain at Anderlecht and I am not thinking of a transfer.”

Lukaku added that if he did leave Anderlecht he wouldn’t join a club that would then loan him on. Recent Chelsea signing, goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, was immediately sent on loan to Atletico Madrid.

“When I do leave, it will not to be lent on as Thibaut Courtois has been,” Lukaku stressed.

The talented 18-year old is a £20million target for a whole host of Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester City but it was believed that Chelsea were favourites to land the starlet.

      To see Modric in a blue shirt will cost you at least £45m, just depends how bad the Russian mafia wants him…

    We caN look upon him as our future, we caN send Daniel to Spurs as Modric exchange deal neways he cost us only 3 m so not a big loss, so we provide space for Lukaku.
    At the moment we lack creativity and i think Nasri is far more creative send Alex+15m cash (cz they need a defender)and get Nasri in part exchange.

    Sam – Are you a complete fool. Studge only worth 3mill…?? Are you for real?? The boy is young, has top class talent and if given game time will thrive at chelsea. And if he were to be sold how is jordan henderson / phil jones worth 17 – 20 mill and studge is only worth three?? Call yourself a blue…a smurf maybe!! Totally agree with nasri though, Modric isnt needed and is too expensive, nasri is a much better player creativly for assisting and scoring which is what we need.

    didnt i read somewhere that chelski can only have 1 more player from abroad in their squad? and surely lukaku would be a good shout for spurs, he would get played plenty and he could still be pushin for honours and we get a decent striker that can score all the chances our midfield creates

    I don’t care how Villa and all the staff will do it. all i know is that i want to see Moric and Lukaku playing for Chelsea this season,and sturriage must stay easted let Kalou and Anelka leave. i believe in Drogba and Danny so much i don’t know about Torres yet but i pray he recover his old form. but is still painful to me that we miss Aguero, Sanchez and Suarez. because this players are world stars. but where i will get angry so much with all the Chelsea staff if will miss to buy Garry Cahill in Jenuary. up blues

    Chelsea youth verses Chelsea experience: McEachran, Sturridge and Van Aanholt are the only youngsters that are ready for regular first team involvement. But even they need to be brought in cautiously. It will be a mistake to rely on the slow and experienced players just as it will be to rely on the agile and inexperienced ones. Chelsea must bring in a few young players who are ready-made, as they did with Ramires and David Luiz. Modric is such a player, but one or two more are needed. Real wingers are missing, and Chelsea’s right back position (Bosingwa/Ferriera) remains our weakest area. I agree that a complete team overhaul is unnecessary, but I think the ones I have labelled are important if Chelsea hope to deal with the likes of Man Utd and Barcelona.

    As a long time Chelsea football fan,i will not say Chelsea should buy this or that player.AVB, i believed now dat the pre-season tour as given u a chance of accessing the ability of avaliable players. Is now left on to you as a qualify and a professonal coach to use dis transfer window as an advantage to get the needed player to cover the weakness area as detected through your assessment assignment.
