ITV pundit Roy Keane has questioned Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku’s desire to turn his career at Stamford Bridge around.
The Belgian international missed a sitter, hitting the post when it was easier to score, during the second half of the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace yesterday, and Keane believes the striker has to show people his quality:
“Sometimes you have to ask a striker how badly do you really want to score? His mindset… Something’s not right… He’s got to make a change though. It’s got to go back to the player. How badly does he want to save his Chelsea career?”
It was another very concerning performance from Lukaku. While low confidence is undoubtedly playing its part, the 28-year-old simply doesn’t look like a player who is worth £20m, let alone £97.5m.
The former Manchester United player’s return to England has not worked out, for whatever reason, and there is now growing speculation that he will decide to leave the Blues at the end of the season.
Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly the keenest to sign Lukaku, and if the Ligue One side do make an approach, it could be best for all concerned if the move is allowed to go ahead.
