Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has taken to Twitter to post an angry message telling The Sun to “stay out of his business” following their report which claims he would not fit into Chelsea’s style of play.
The Sun report in question claims Lukaku would struggle with defensive responsibilities if he were to move to Chelsea and has suggested that he may prefer a move to Manchester United this summer.
It said: “Chelsea’s boss demands his strikers defend and press opponents — something which does not come naturally to Lukaku.”
The report states Lukaku will force a move for himself this summer, with Champions League football in his sights, but he wants to go to a club where he will be the first choice striker.
This comes following the Daily Mail article which speculated that Antonio Conte was ready to make a club-record bid for the striker this summer.
The 23-year-old responded angrily to the speculation via his personal Twitter account in Monday’s early hours.
The Belgian said: “As long as I didn’t make a public statement about my situation please stay out of my business OK”

This also comes after Ian Wright urged the 58-time Belgium international to leave the Toffees this summer.
Lukaku is currently leading the race to win the Premier League’s golden boot, and currently sits on 24 goals from 35 games.
Everton currently sit seventh in the Premier League following a disappointing 1-0 loss to Swansea on Saturday.
