Romelu Lukaku has moved to refute speculation claiming a fall-out between himself and his parent club manager Jose Mourinho, insisting he is getting ready to return to Chelsea next season.
Lukaku: “IÂ´ve had Jose Mourinho as a coach for two months,” he added. “Something special. HeÂ´s building the foundations of an unbeatable machine again. We didnÂ´t have problems.”
“He wanted me to stay and asked me why I wanted to leave.
“In some interviews my words were twisted, but the truth is that he accepted to let me leave.
“He did understand what I wanted. ThatÂ´s what I really appreciate in him.”
“Am I getting ready for Chelsea next season? “Yes, why else would I have signed a contract for five years?
“I will return to Chelsea as one of the best strikers in the Premier League.”
“I still want to become one of the best strikers in the world,” he expressed. “I hope that you can put me in line with [Edinson] Cavani, [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, [Robin] Van Persie, [Luis] Suarez and [Robert] Lewandowski in two yearsÂ´ time.
“I analyse them all. I look at their movements. The presence of Ibrahimovic, the left foot of Van Persie, the right foot of Cavani, the movement of Lewandowski and the dribbles of Suarez.
“He is that unpredictable. In three years of the Premier League I havenÂ´t seen anyone doing what he did.”
