Earlier on Wednesday, we covered a story from Corriere dello Sport regarding Romelu Lukaku and a potential (yet unlikely) move to Juventus after the announcement Alvaro Morata would be leaving in the summer.
His agent, Mino Raiola, previously stated clubs in Italy wouldn’t be capable to afford his client, such are the demands of Everton, who would rather not see him leave.
Corriere said it would take a minimum of around €50m to start negotiations with the Premier League club, and it seems few clubs in the world would be capable of spending such amounts.
However, recent change in fortunes at a couple of Serie A clubs, notably AC Milan and Inter Milan, who are both close to being taken over by Chinese investors, could make things very interest this summer.
Speaking to Sportmediaset on Wednesday, Mino Raiola said anything was possible.
He said: “Could Lukaku interest the Chinese who want Milan? He’s a footballer who interests everyone. It’s like, how do I say this, if other museums wanted to showcase the Mona Lisa.
“You could compare Lukaku to one of the great Flemish artists, but I am yet to get a precise idea of what is happening.”
Unlike Zlatan Ibrahimovic who has already made his mind up about his next club, Romelu Lukaku’s future remains up in the air, and probably will do until the Euros come to an end for Belgium, whenever that might be.
