Joe Cole sends clear message to Romelu Lukaku over Chelsea career

Joe Cole sends a clear message to Romelu Lukaku about Chelsea career

It’s clear that Romelu Lukaku has struggled for the level since returning to Chelsea last summer.

In fact, the Belgian has failed to score a single goal or assist in his last seven league games with Chelsea, with his last two goals for the club coming in the FA Cup competition.

This has led to Kai Havertz becoming the Blues’ main central choice, and to reports that Lukaku is unhappy.

Lukaku’s latest troubling bid for Chelsea came in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday.

Chelsea would have beaten Crystal Palace 2-0 and were already winning by the time Lukaku was brought in. However, fans will still worry that their record signing missed a huge opportunity that should have ended after being played by Timo Werner.

Now, after Chelsea beat Crystal Palace, Joe Cole has stated that Lukaku has six weeks to salvage his Chelsea career:

“He has six weeks to save his Chelsea career if he wants to,” Cole She said. “You look at Timo Werner who doesn’t give up and when he doesn’t score he shows something else. With Lukaku he wants to be that focal point but he missed an opportunity and we were in the studio [saying] If it isn’t for you, it won’t work for you. “He got it all wrong, he opens his body and hits the shaft. And he will be destroyed for himself because he is better than that.”

Where will Lukaku go?

If Lukaku decides he doesn’t want to continue at Chelsea, there probably won’t be many big clubs who can afford him and want him at the moment.

There’s no doubt Inter Milan will love him again, but it’s hard to see them have the money on hand.

Elsewhere, PSG appears to be the obvious choice as they have a lot of money and may need a new striker if Kylian Mbappe leaves in the summer.
