The Lukaku saga continues.

Everton striker Romelu Lukakau had been heavily rumoured to be heading to Chelsea  this summer – until yesterday, when multiple media outlets reported that he was actually on his way to  Manchester United, for a cool £75 million. Yet less than an hour later, it turned out those reports were “premature”.

Now, The Telegraph are reporting that Chelsea have matched Man United’s giant bid for the Belgian. However, there is one key snag – they say that  Chelsea will not match the fees his agent Mino Raiola will get if he moves to United. Now it is effectively up to Lukaku himself as to which option he takes. Chelsea reportedly believe he would rather return to them, but that means going against his agent.

This one ain’t over, folks.
