And by that, he means Chelsea. Hey, that's us!

So, it looks like Romelu Lukaku's latest little fling is over - this time it was Everton, following last year's bewitching by Steve Clarke and the West Bromwich Albion fans - and he's back to his first love, Chelsea.

"You know, I still have a two-year contract with the biggest club in England, because that is Chelsea. I'm still hoping to play there. Chelsea has a good coach."

While Lukaku does bemoan the lack of clarity regarding his future - and who can blame him after the events of last summer and the previous false starts as a member of the Chelsea first team and the latest rumors such as a part-exchange/loan for Diego Costa - for now he's focusing keeping his head down and doing his best for his country at the World Cup, just like fellow Belgian and fellow Chelsea player unclear of future Thibaut Courtois.

So after the World Cup, welcome back, Romelu.  Can you please grow your hair back out by then?
