Football super-agent Mino Raiola disclosed that his client Romelu Lukaku is edging closer to sign a new contract with Everton and other clubs would have to splurge huge cash in order to lure him away.
Mino Raiola had told Lukaku that he was rubbish in a good way after he scored a hat-trick against Sunderland in Premier League last week.
Raiola hailed his talent and accentuated that clubs outside England – only Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG and Bayern Munich, can afford to spend a hefty amount to secure the services of the Belgian striker.
Mino Raiola, who was the curator of Pogba’s record record transfer, hailed praise on Lukaku after he clinched the treble against Sunderland last week.
Raiola accentuated that Lukaku is so talented that he should have netted in six goals against Moyes’struggling and lack lustre Sunderland.
“I spoke with him after his hat-trick against Sunderland. I said, ‘You were rubbish, you should have scored six!” said Raiola.
“There was talk of Juventus but no-one can afford him in Italy.”
“Outside of England, realistically the only clubs that can afford him are Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid.”
With on-going negotiations over Lukaku’s new contract with Everton, Raiola stressed that the Belgian striker has a bright future at Goodison Park.
“We are talking, yes it is possible that he could stay, said Raiola.
“This year the message was clear he was not for sale and he is really happy there at the moment.”
“We are happy with what the club is doing now, we will see how the season goes.”
“The beauty for Everton is the chairman Bill Kenwright.”
“This man is one of the most amazing men I have met in my 35 years in football.”
“I would like to have him as owner of my football club.”
“He knows what players really need I believe, he is a great character who loves his club. It is a great strength.”
