Mourinho rules out Lukaku return
Jose Mourinho has revealed that Romelu Lukaku cannot return from his loan at Everton, until the expiration of the deal.
Mourinho has confirmed that Romelu Lukaku is unable return to Stamford Bridge this season. The Belgian forward must continue to impress away from his proper club.
There was no recall clause in Lukaku’s contract with Everton, meaning he is definitely at Goodison Park until May 2014.
Mourinho said: ‘Lukaku is good at Everton. If he’s going to play every game, it’s good for his future at Chelsea.’
Encouraging words in the long-term for the youngster, but Chelsea’s strikers continue to disappoint as Samuel Eto’o struggles to adapt to the Premier League and Fernando Torres fails to find consistency. In terms of loanees, the imminent arrival of Thibaut Courtois would provide a significant headache for Mourinho, but some would argue that Lukaku should be the Blues starting striker.
