Chelsea transfer news: Lukaku to Everton off as Real Madrid plot move

A round up of transfer stories this morning about Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho is set to give Romelu Lukaku a second chance at the club despite speculation he could leave.

Reports yesterday claimed the Belgian was in line to make a move to Everton, where he played on loan last season.

However, Chelsea assistant boss Steve Holland says the plan is for Lukaku to join the rest of the squad after his break for playing at the World Cup.

Links still linger over interest in Lukaku from plenty of sides, with Real Madrid one of the sides linked by the Spanish press.

AS claims that Real are planning a summer bid for the Belgian, with Carlo Ancelotti drawing up a shortlist of possible attacking additions.

Radamel Falcao and Manchester City star Alvaro Negredo are also thought to be of interest.

Christian Atsu could be the next player to head to Everton from the Blues on a loan deal.

The Metro claims Everton want to sign the winger to give Roberto Martinez more attacking options next season.

The paper claims Everton have already made an inquiry about taking the wide man on loan.
