Romelu Lukaku Reportedly Wants to Return to Chelsea this Summer
Apr 22 2017 by Marjorie Miles
Chelsea are preparing to offer hot prospect Tammy Abraham to Everton as part of a deal to secure summer target Romelu Lukaku, according to theLondon Evening Standard. Diego Costa has been linked with a summer exit from Stamford Bridge, and with an impressive record in the Premier League to boast of, Lukaku could become a top notch replacement for the Spain striker.
"We know that we have to be prepared in the number of players we have".
"With all due respect to Everton, if he does go to Chelsea he will play with better players, so he is going to get better as well". Not just between vying clubs, but also between the player and his current club.
Manchester United are eager to sign a long-term successor for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, especially with the Swede's future beyond this season at Old Trafford not certain. If Costa was to move on, then Lukaku would be the ideal replacement.

Green's presence helped space the floor at the start of both halves, and he battled through a twisted ankle to play 20 minutes. He scored eight points in the third quarter, helping the Celtics regain control, and finished with nine assists in the game.
Everton now sit seventh with 57 points from 33 matches, while Lukaku tops the Premier League goalscoring charts with 24 goals.
British media reported this week that Everton were asking a world record fee of 100 million pounds ($128 million) for the 23-year-old Belgian global, who has scored 24 league goals in this campaign.
"It would be a dream to play in the Premier League". Costa now has 17, as does United's Zlatan Ibrahimovich.
The Telegraph claim that the relationship between the two clubs was severely dented and means that the Toffees would rather prize asset Romelu Lukaku join Manchester United than opt for a move to Stamford Bridge in the forthcoming transfer window. Lukaku would be an ideal potential signing for either club.
