Agent to the superstars Mino Raiola has been talking to the press again, and it’s no surprise that Romelu Lukaku and his future at Everton are among the things he chose to talk about.
“We are talking, yes it is possible that he could stay.
“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.”
So what’s this, Lukaku will be staying after all? And then Raiola went off on another one of his flights of fancy.
“I spoke with him after his hat-trick against Sunderland. I said you were rubbish, you should have scored six!
“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.”
He even complimented Bill Kenwright while he was at it!
“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.”
Oh boy, can’t wait to see what happens next.
