Former striker gives Jose Mourinho and Chelsea a major blow with Champions League announcement


Former Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku says he wants to join a club that will feature in next season's Champions League.

The Blues and Manchester United, both linked with the player, have failed to qualify for Europe's most prestigious competition.

Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are both favourites to sign the 23-year-old who is preparing to feature in this summer's Euro 2016 Championship with Belgium.

"Next season I want to play with a club that will feature in the Champions League," he told So Foot.

"In the past, the days of West Bromwich [in 2012], I was a step away from Juventus.

"But [my agent] Mino Raiola told me in no uncertain terms that before such a move, I would have to be more consistent and aggressive on the field.

"I am an ambitious guy, I want to win trophies, like all other players handled by Mino, like [Juventus midfielder] Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"In 2012 I won the Champions League with Chelsea, but did not want to touch it. The reason? Because I had not contributed to the victory."
