Chelsea Demotes Striker Lukaku to U-17

Chelsea have relegated their multi-million pound striker, Romelu Lukaku, to their U21 team. 

Also, the Belgian has not held a single conversation with manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Despite the West London side having a shortage of strikers, they are desperate to sell Lukaku this summer.


The former Everton and Manchester United star spent last season at Inter Milan.


Although the Belgium international has agreed personal terms with Juventus, the Blues have been unable to strike a deal with the Italian giants


Juventus want a deal that would involve Dusan Vlahovic moving the other way but Pochettino is not a fan of the former Fiorentina striker.

Lukaku had already turned down approaches from Saudi clubs and there is no other concrete interest in the Belgian.

And now the Telegraph reports that the former Inter Milan striker is now training with Chelsea U21s.

The report added that the Belgian has not spoken to Pochettino since the Argentine took over from Frank Lampard.
