Romelu Lukaku Texted His Former Teammate And Informed On His Chelsea Future

Chelsea Star Romelu Lukaku messaged former Everton player Tim Howard regarding his Chelsea future, saying him he'll be able to say more after Monday's meeting.

Following a contentious talk with Sky Sports Italia, Lukaku has been dropped out from the team to face Liverpool this afternoon.

The 28-year-old admitted he was dissatisfied with his role at Chelsea and talked fondly of Inter Milan, who he departed last season.

As per NBC Sport, Lukaku texted Howard and said, I can't speak more about it."  On Monday, there'll be another meeting. I have yet another meeting; afterwards, I can discuss further.

Howard spent 3 years with Romelu at Goodison Park and has talked well of him, claiming that he isn't 'venomous' and is a nice guy. 

"I know he's frustrated," he told Chelsea Chronicle. Things happened at Inter, the style he quit, and the way he would have to be sold in order for the club to recover some funds."
He did not have the chance to speak with and in the way he likes to, and he didn't have to depart on his own behalf.

And although, as I talked to him a few weeks earlier, he stated unfinished business at Chelsea club, which I believe was true, and I thought it was a happy face to tell. Now I am here, and I have to return back and maybe win more titles.

However, speaking in this manner appears to be out of character for him.

After possessing one of England's toughest defences earlier in the season, they have drawn 3 of their last 4 matches and had only 1 clean sheet in December.

Ben Chilwell is gone for the season due to an ACL injury, while Reece James is already been sidelines due to hamstring injury.
