Goal.com has asked Chelsea fans to vote on whether they think Jose Mourinho will regret selling Romelu Lukaku to Everton.
At the time of writing, the results are unanimous with 71.7% of those who voted suggesting it’s a move which will come back and haunt the Portuguese boss.
While Roberto Martinez revealed his belief that the 21-year-old could become one of the best strikers in the world, Mourinho explained away the decision due to Lukaku’s unwillingness to fight for his place at Chelsea.
Lukaku always maintained that he wanted to play for the West Londoners, but Mourinho says it was impossible for Chelsea to promise him number one status in such a competitive squad.
Chelsea’s summer capture of Diego Costa, a similar style player to Lukaku, sealed the Belgian’s fate and he’ll now be focused on performing for the Toffees when the new campaign gets under way.
Fingers crossed for Chelsea fans that they aren’t correct in predicting that Mourinho will regret the decision.
