Everton striker Romelu Lukaku is ready reject all advances from Manchester United this summer, after ordering his agent to finalise a return to Chelsea, the Sunday World understands.

Super agent Mino Raiola is preparing to set up one of the biggest transfers of the summer, after his client Lukaku made it clear to Everton that he wants to move on this summer.

While Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move to sign the Premier League's leading scorer, we understand that Lukaku is not keen to work with United boss Jose Mourinho once again after their tempestuous relationship at Chelsea.

Instead, he has set his heart on a return to newly crowned Premier League champions Chelsea, as he looks to live out his dream of following in the footsteps of his hero Didier Drogba.

Everton will be reluctant sellers if they fail in a final push to convince Lukaku to stay, but manager Ronald Koeman has admitted he does not know whether his star man will still be at the club next season.

Now it is up to Chelsea to make the offer that could take Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge and they may have to double the fee they £28m paid to sign the Belgium to get him back in a blue shirt.
