LUKAKU UPDATE: Chelsea star demoted to Chelsea U21s

According to the Telegraph via Metro, Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is now training with Chelsea U21s and still has not spoken to Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino since the Argentine arrived as head coach this summer.

Lukaku is desperate to leave Chelsea this summer following his season-long loan at Inter Milan last season.

Lukaku has agreed personal terms with Juventus but Chelsea have been unable to strike a deal with the Italian side.

Juventus are only interested in a cash plus player-swap deal which would see Dusan Vlahovic head in the other direction.

The problem is that Pochettino is not a fan of Vlahovic and has no desire to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

Lukaku rejected a move to Saudi Arabia earlier in the window and there is no other concrete interest in the Belgian, leaving the 30-year-old stuck in transfer limbo.
