Romelu Lukaku could snub Chelsea for Man Utd move

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku could reportedly snub a move to former club Chelsea as he is concerned over Antonio Conte's system.

The Belgium international is widely expected to leave Goodison Park in the summer as he prepares to test himself at a bigger club next season.

Recent speculation from The Sun suggested that Lukaku could reject advances from Manchester United for a switch to Chelsea as he has yet to overcome his disappointment at being sold out permanently by Jose Mourinho while at Stamford Bridge.

However, the same source has now brought a fresh twist to the story with the Belgian not entirely convinced with Conte's style of play.

Conte has utilised Costa as the sole striker upfront for the Blues this term, and Lukaku is concerned that his opportunities could be restricted as in his previous spell in west London.

On the other hand, United have yet to find a solution for their striker crisis with Zlatan Ibrahimovic currently on a long injury layoff following a surgery on a double knee damage.
