Romelu Lukaku, it is fair to say, is slightly disappointed in the start of his Chelsea career. He has publicly denounced former boss Andres Villas-Boas for the treatment he received. He only ended up playing in eight league games, often as a substitute. He claims that he learnt nothing from Villas-Boas after signing a five year contract last summer.
Stoke City wants to take the player on loan, and he would certainly get more Premier league experience. A lot will depend on who is managing Chelsea next season and who is brought in to replace the players on their way out of Stamford Bridge. It is certain that the Blues will be bringing in at least one top name striker, if not two, to replace the departing legend that is Didier Drogba.
Fernando Torres will be expecting to play much more next season and was starting to show a return to form. If he has a good tournament for Spain, his confidence will be even stronger and he will finally, we hope, be the player he was in his early days at Liverpool.
It looks likely that Lukaku will be off on loan, but Tony Pulis may have a battle on his hands to bring him to Stoke. Other clubs are sure to be interested in the striker who was once top scorer in the Belgian league and was dubbed ‘the new Drogba.’
