Lukaku's agent planning talks over Chelsea future

Romelu Lukaku agent is planning on having talks with Chelsea this summer about the forward's future.

Federico Pastorello says Lukaku is fully focused on playing for Chelsea but admits there have been "problems" since he moved from Inter Milan in a £97m deal last summer.

"Given the figures of the transfer, no one could have expected such a situation," Pastorello says in today's La Repubblica. "I’m not the one to discuss technical choices, but it is obvious that there was a problem. 

"The numbers, however, must be weighted: he is the best scorer of the team this season, even with a lower playing time compared to his teammates. 

"The situation must be carefully evaluated, now there’s a Champions League spot to secure, and the FA Cup final. Romelu is totally focused on that, we have not talked about anything else."

Asked about the possibility of Lukaku returning to Inter this summer, Pastorello said: "Much ado about nothing. He has their club and their fans in his heart, he has never hidden that, as well as his love for Anderlecht where he would like to end his career. 

"It’s nonsense to speculate on negotiations. Chelsea have just defined the takeover of the club, we still don’t know our new interlocutors, let alone if we can hypothesize talks with Inter, AC Milan or whatever. We have to be patient and wait."
