Anderlecht will sell Lukaku to Chelsea but will want starlet on loan

Lukaku can join Chelsea but Anderlecht will want De Bruyne on loanAnderlecht are ready to sell Lukaku to Chelsea however they want the Stamford Bridge club to buy Kevin De Bruyne from Genk and loan the youngster to them as part of the deal.

Chelsea have been linked with both Belgian starlets for some time but the Lukaku deal now looks set to be reaching the final intricate stages but should Genk agree to sell De Bruyne to the West London outfit they will probably be more than happy to loan the 19 year old midfielder to Anderlecht for the first year.

Lukaku recently admitted that he would be joining one of the top three clubs in the Premiership and with Manchester United and Manchester City not really linked at all with the young striker, it would appear that Chelsea are odds-on favourites.

Arsenal, whilst not finishing in the top three could also be keen but despite Drogba dismantling Wenger’s defence on most occasions it does not seem likely that the Gunners would be in a position to outbid their London rivals for a player Wenger will know will be doing to him exactly as Drogba has done over the years.

The intricacies of dealing for certain players abroad can be complicated, especially when there are other players thrown into the mix, when it comes to loan players however the issue is made much simpler. Genk will of course first have to agree to the reported £9m bid that Chelsea have offered for the youngster.
