Romelu Lukaku would prefer to move to Chelsea in the summer transfer window despite interest from Manchester United, according to reports.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Lukaku has informed his advisors that his first preference is a return to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

The same article states that the Belgium international is determined to force through a move away from Goodison Park in the summer transfer window.

According to the same story, Lukaku has already told outspoken agent Mino Raiola that he wants to secure a return to Stamford Bridge this summer.

The 24-year-old moved to Everton in a £27m deal from Chelsea in the 2014 summer transfer window after Jose Mourinho was unable to offer Lukaku regular first-team football.

The Belgian forward has scored 68 times in 141 appearances in the Premier League during a four-season stay on the blue half of Merseyside.
