DONE DEAL: Lukaku to Everton for £24m. How do you feel about it?

After a "Tweet" this morning from Romelu Lukaku where he has openly stated "Time to write a new chapter" the Bookmakers have suspended betting on his future and it's thought that he is about to sign for Everton for £24m.

It seems that with the signing of Didier Drogba, all indications are that Chelsea are prepared to stick for another season with Fernando Torres and he will provide the manager with the attacking option up front along side Costa and Drogba.

The Lukaku deal is more or less confirmed and if the reported fee is correct at £24m then Chelsea have made a decent profit on the big Belgian. Signed for a reported figure of around £10 (that could rise up to £17m with add ons) Chelsea have cashed in at the right time.

Now when this deal is confirmed it will divide opinion amongst the Chelsea faithful worldwide. Many Chelsea fans will agree with the deal because lets face it, he has hardly featured here ever since he signed, but there are those that will be disappointed that he was never given a chance or given the managers backing.

I said only the other day that with Drogba's return, it would be the perfect opportunity for Lukaku to work with him for the season to look to improve his game. There is no one better to learn from than Drogba and it would be interesting to see if that happens but I guess now it never will.

I personally do not believe that the World Cup in Brazil was good for Lukaku and he did not do himself any favours out there. His performances were disappointing and his blatant disrespect shown against the managers decision to substitute him was a disgrace.

As with most players these days, they need to be man managed and we have seen both at West Brom under Steve Clarke and then at Everton under Roberto Martinez, Lukaku had the confidence and belief in his ability from both knowing he would play more often than missing out. As a result for two seasons in the Premier League he delivered.

I cannot help but think that the move to Everton suits everyone here. They can offer him regular first team football which he is not going to get here and it's obvious after whatever it was that happened at the end of the summer transfer window last year, he is not a part of Jose Mourinho's plans.

Romelu Lukaku, I know that all you ever wanted to do was to play for Chelsea. It's just a shame that it's turned out the way it has. Good luck on Merseyside!
