Lukaku, of course, has been linked with a big-money move to Stamford Bridge this summer, with Everton slapping a world-record £100m price-tag on the head of the 25-goal hitman.

However, Everton fans can breath a sigh of relief, as the Chelsea boards were merely coincidental.

The five-a-side pitch in Los Angeles, where Lukaku is currently holidaying, have had the Chelsea boards on them for some time and were not in place for any special event surrounding the Premier League champions.

Lukaku was taking part in game at the Urban Soccer 5 Center in Norwalk, and the match also involved the likes of Samir Nasri and Andre-Pierre Gignac.

“What an amazing experience for our customers to watch a friendly game between @10apg @samirnasri8 and @rlukaku9 thank you guys” posted the Center’s Instagram account.
