Romelu Lukaku rejects most lucrative contract in Everton's history

Romelu Lukaku rejects most lucrative contract in Everton's history

Manchester United and Chelsea are circling around a transfer deal for Romelu Lukaku, according to reports.

His good performances appear to have captured Chelsea's attention, with the Telegraph reporting that theb Blues are considering making a £100million summer move to sign both Barkley and Lukaku.

Last month Lukaku's agent, Mino Raiola, stated his client meant to snub interest from Chelsea and commit his future to Everton.

A new contract will see the Merseysiders break the £100,000-a-week wage barrier to make Lukaku the best-paid player in their history.

Everton supporters have been reacting on Twitter to the news that Romelu Lukaku will not sign a new contract with the club, as reported by The Guardian.

The Belgium worldwide is also keen to play in the Champions League next season.

But if Everton can not, it is understood they will ask for more than the £65million Barcelona paid Liverpool for Luis Suarez in July 2014 - the highest fee received by a British club for a specialist striker.

First of all I would like to point out that the Lukaku situation is far from clear cut. That certainly doesn't bode well for Everton's hopes of keeping him, and neither does the fact that he could be on his way to winning the Golden Boot.

"It is not an issue", Moshiri told talkSPORT.

Everton are exactly where they should be.

With Diego Costa's future beyond this season uncertain, Chelsea need a ready made replacement for the powerful forward, a role Lukaku can perfectly don.

Recently Lukaku hinted that he needs Champions League football to be taken seriously as a world-class striker.

'He has over two years left on his contract and the new, improved contract is recognition of what he's done for the club. "No one should worry, he's our player".
