Romelu Lukaku: Opens up on contract rejection

Romelu Lukaku will speak to Everton’s new majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri about his future but has reiterated he wants to win titles.

Lukaku finished the season with 25 goals for Everton, but the Toffees were beaten in the FA Cup semi-finals by Manchester United and finished in the bottom half of the Premier League table.

Lukaku, linked with a return to Chelsea, will at least hear out Moshiri but has dropped another strong hint his future lies away from Goodison Park.

“I’m at a point where I have to make a good career choice,” the 23-year-old is quoted as saying in the Daily Star.

“We have a new investor at Everton and out of courtesy I will listen to what he has to say. But I have my own ideas in mind. I want to win titles.

“I have had a very good season, but it is time for me to write myself a CV. That is why I play football.

“I got that trophy-winning mindset from Chelsea.

“People in Belgium don’t see me playing for Everton, but I am respected by fans, managers and experts like Jamie Carragher, Graeme Souness and Thierry Henry.”
