Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku admits club future is uncertain

The powerful Belgian forward has stated that he is focusing solely on the World Cup and has not been dwelling on his role at Stamford Bridge.

After another successful loan spell at a Premier League side, Romelu Lukaku will feel that he has done enough to be given a chance in the Chelsea first team.

Jose Mourinho farmed the Belgium international out to Everton in 2013-14, while the Blues’ strikers struggled to get the goals to fire the club into contention.

Although a new big-name forward signing is expected at Stamford Bridge this summer, Lukaku will be hopeful of playing a role in the Chelsea first team upon his return to the club.

If this is not the case it may well be that the Anderlecht prodigy looks to move away from west London in a search for regular football.

Lukaku has been quizzed about his club future, but stated that his focus at the moment was solely on the World Cup.

“I’ve not thought about my future club for next season,” he told RTBF.

“For me the most important thing is the World Cup. I am 100 per cent focused on it – after that, the rest will follow.”

Lukaku will lead the line for Belgium at the World Cup after Christian Benteke’s injury and recently scored a hat-trick in a warm-up game against Luxembourg.

If the striker does decide to leave Chelsea or is surplus to requirements, he will have a long list of suitors keen to sign him.
