Lukaku takes a pop at The Sun; wants end to speculation

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has labelled “some media annoying” and hit out at the speculation about his future.

The Belgium international has himself fuelled the seemingly daily rumour mill after telling the club back in March he will not sign the contract extension on offer.

Lukaku’s agent Mino Raiola claimed the deal to stay was “99.99999999” per cent done only for the player to tell a Belgian broadcaster he was not going to extend his deal.

Asked Lukaku whether he was going to sign the contract, whether he was still reflecting on it and whether there was an agreement and to each question the striker simply answered ‘No’.


Now though after continued talk about his next destination with Man Utd supposed to be rivalling Chelsea for his signature, Lukaku is not happy.

“As long as I didn’t make a public statement about my situation please stay out of my business ok?” the 23-year-old, who has more than two years remaining on his existing deal, wrote on Twitter.

“Some media these days are annoying man.”

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has been consistent in his handling of the matter, insisting there is no cause for concern yet because of the length of time remaining on the striker’s contract.

However, it is understood the club would want a British record fee exceeding £65million should they decide to sell Lukaku, who is the leading scorer in the Premier League this season with 24 goals.
