Reports: Manchester United target Lukaku has 'reached an agreement' with Chelsea

Reports on Twitter are claiming Everton forward Romelu Lukaku is set to rejoin his former club Chelsea.

The Premier League champions are favourites to land the 24 year-old striker, with journalist Tancredi Palmeri claiming that the two parties have "reached an agreement on principles (sic)".

Wherever he is off to, Lukaku's future should become clearer in the coming days after the Everton striker revealed both he and his agent know his next move.

The Belgium international striker, who scored 25 Premier League goals last season, rejected a new contract offer from the Toffees in March and speculation has been rife as to his next destination.

His former boss Jose Mourinho is thought to want the striker at Manchester United and Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are the latest club linked.

Speaking after Belgium's 2-1 win against the Czech Republic on Monday, Lukaku told Sky Sports News: "My agent knows what is going to happen, I know what I want to do. Whatever happens, you guys (the media) will know."
