Chelsea are in advance negotiations with Atletico Madrid to send Romelu Lukaku on loan to the Vicente Calderon stadium next season, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish newspaper AS claim, Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is set to join La Liga champions Atletico Madrid on loan next season. Chelsea have added Diego Costa to their strike force for next season and the Belgian is likely to be surplus to requirements yet again, but Chelsea don’t want to offload him permanently.

The Belgian international has spent the last two seasons on loan at West Brom and Everton, since he moved to Stamford Bridge from Anderlecht in 2011 for £20 million.

The 21 year old scored 16 goals for Everton last season, helped Everton finish above Tottenham and Manchester United to secure a place in next season Europa League. Recently, he expressed his desire to leave Chelsea and claimed there are many clubs who want to sign him.

He said: “You know Chelsea: every year they buy a new top striker.

“I remember me coming into the dressing room last year and seeing Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba and going: ‘Whoah! What’s happening here?’

“But no problem. Many clubs are interested in me.

“At this stage I have to look to myself. I have to play a good World Cup. That’s very interesting for all the players looking for a transfer, and I must be one of them.

“Chelsea know my point of view.”

Meanwhile, Romelu Lukaku will be fit for the World Cup despite injury against Tunisia after initial reports suggested the 21-year-old had suffered a badly sprained ankle, which could have sidelined him for weeks.
