Everton manager refuses comment on Romelu Lukaku sale claims

first_imgEverton boss Roberto Martinez declined to comment on claims from Romelu Lukaku’s agent that the Toffees would sell the striker if the right offer came in.Mino Raiola reportedly told a French radio station they had been given Martinez’s blessing amid rumours of interest from Paris Saint-Germain. But the Spaniard was unwilling to go into the issue, saying: “I’m not here to try to do the job of agent. “I’m not going to entertain any sort of rumours and speculation. I have to do that during the transfer window, against my wishes, so as you can understand I’m quite happy now not to go into any comments.”Club-record signing Lukaku, 22, has made a good start to the season after an up-and-down first campaign as a permanent Everton player, scoring seven goals in 13 appearances. Martinez said: “With Romelu, it has been a joy to see him growing and developing from a very young age.”He’s had a very important role with us and now I feel he’s in the perfect moment to kick on and even take more responsibility on the pitch. “All that matters to everyone at Everton is Romelu can keep fulfilling that role, keep enjoying his football and being very important for the team.”–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
