Romelu Lukaku’s agent reveals likelihood of a move away from Chelsea
Lukaku ends goal drought
Romelu Lukaku finally ended his mini goal-drought with a goal during Chelsea’s 3-3 draw with Zenit St Petersburg.
Making his first start for the Blues since he was injured against Malmo in October, Lukaku could not miss when Timo Werner squared the ball to him six yards out, and promptly levelled the game at 2-2 midway through the second half.

Now, he will look to use that as a springboard to add to his frankly abysmal three Premier League goals thus far when the Blues take on Leeds United this afternoon, having failed to find the back of the net since Chelsea’s win over Aston Villa in September.
Lukaku’s agent speaks out
If the Belgian’s agent is anything to go by however, it may be a short stint for Lukaku in west London.
Speaking to Italian outlet Tuttosport, the agent of Chelsea’s latest mega-money signing, Federico Pastorello, was drawn on the future of his client.
And, in a frank admission, he revealed that Lukaku may not be at Chelsea long at all.
Questioned on what the future holds for the Belgian, Pastorello claimed:
“One day we will see Lukaku back in Serie A,”
“Lukaku loves Italy. But right now it’s up to Chelsea to take advantage of Romelu’s qualities.”

Lukaku, of course, only joined the Blues for a second spell in the summer, from Italian Champions Inter Milan, but could he be set for a return in the coming years, as his agent suggests?
