Moshiri wants 'top dollar' for Lukaku or he stays

| Tuesday, 21 March 2017  0 Comment  [Jump to last]
Everton's major shareholder reportedly turned down huge money for Romelu Lukaku last summer and has no interest in inserting a release clause into his contract.

That's the contention of Paul Joyce in The Times who says that a £70m bid from Chelsea was rebuffed, a reflection of Farhad Moshiri's desire to keep the Belgian unless Paul Pogba-esque money is offered for him.

Lukaku informed the Blues' hierarchy last week that he had no intention of signing a new contract at Goodison Park and spelled out his frustration at what he perceives to have been a lack of urgency in the transfer market in the last two windows.

He says he is ready to play in the Champions League and, with two years remaining on his current deal at the end of this season, feels this coming summer would be the time to agitate for a move, knowing that it might be Everton's last chance to get the maximum fee for him.
