Romelu Lukaku Set To Leave Everton This Summer, Claims His Father
Romelu Lukaku’s father Roger Lukaku has all but confirmed that his son will leave Everton this summer.
Romelu Lukaku scored 25 goals in 46 games for Everton in all competitions this season, but couldn’t help the Toffees secure a finish in the top half of the Premier League table, with his side finishing at the 11th place. However, the 23-year-old forward intends to play in the UEFA Champions League and measure himself against the absolute top players, which is why he may end up leaving the Merseyside club this summer.
The Belgian striker’s father, Roger Lukaku, recently had his say on his son’s future, where he talked about his agent, his most-probable future destinations as well as when the move will be finalized.
Speaking to the Belgian magazine Humo, Lukaku Sr. revealed: “Everton are asking around £65m for Rom. I think a transfer will be done before the Euros.
“I hope and believe that Mino (Lukaku’s agent) is fair, and that he is acting in the best interest of the player. Romelu will decide his future, but agents have the last word most of the time. I hope and I think Mino Raiola is a honest man.
“Now, with Romelu it will be quickly arranged. Whether the transfer has been sorted? Almost. I think it will be in place before the European Championship. Right now, I think the most suitable clubs for him are Bayern Munich or Manchester United.
“Especially Bayern as the club every year are at least in the semi finals of the Champions League, and the Bundesliga suits him perfectly. I do not think he will go to Italy because the game is far too closed at the back. What is certain is that to continue to progress, he needs to change club, he must make the right choice.”
