Chelsea boss Mourinho tight-lipped over Lukaku’s long-term future

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has refused to discuss Romelu Lukaku’s long-term future amid speculation the striker could join Tottenham in the summer.

Lukaku, 20, is on a season-long loan at Everton, who are keen to sign him on a permanent basis at the end of the campaign.

Reports suggest he will be sold by Chelsea, while his agent has claimed there is interest from a number of clubs and that talks have taken place with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

“I don’t think it’s the time to speak about it,” said Mourinho, who added that no approaches have been made for the Belgian.

“He is a Chelsea player but at the same time he is also an Everton player until the end of the season and we want to respect that. Everton has been a good club for a loan.”
