Romelu Lukaku has left agent Mino Raiola to sort out his future while he concentrates on delivering Euro 2016 glory for Belgium.
The striker made it clear in the spring he wants Champions League football, but the landscape has since changed at Everton with the arrival of majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri and manager Ronald Koeman.
Raiola spoke encouragingly this week of the new Goodison Park “project” and suggested only Europe’s richest clubs now have the financial clout to prise Lukaku out of Merseyside.
And the 23-year-old is putting his personal career on hold while Belgium remain in the hunt for their first major trophy.
“It’s my agent who is dealing with that aspect,” Romelu Lukaku told SSN HQ. “I’m just focused on Belgium, and the most important thing is helping my team.”
