Romelu Lukaku to Real Madrid? Spanish expert tells talkSPORT £60m move from Everton unlikely

22 Mar

Romelu Lukaku is unlikely to be a serious transfer target for Real Madrid this summer, according to Spanish football expert Graham Hunter. 

According to The Sun, Real are preparing to offer Everton £60m to take the prolific striker to the Bernabeu.

The young Belgian has smashed 25 goals in 37 games this season and recently admitted he is desperate to play in the Champions League.

But Hunter would be surprised if Real president Florentino Perez sanctions a move for the 22-year-old.

Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, he said: “Although Florentino Perez does spend willy-nilly, he does it based on marketing.

“He buys based on who he thinks will sell shirts around the world and exceptional young footballer though Lukaku is, with an extraordinary goals-to-games ratio, I don’t think he is in that category yet as far as Florentino Perez is concerned.

“In all honesty, I don’t think Romelu Lukaku is the number one priority for Real Madrid.”
