Romelu Lukaku Considering Legal Action Against Everton Owner For 'Voodoo' Claim

Romelu Lukaku Considering Legal Action Against Everton Owner For 'Voodoo' Claim

The former Toffees striker, who left for Manchester United in the summer, is furious at claims he rejected a new contract with the Merseyside club because of a "voodoo message".

It was the biggest transfer of the summer, but Romelu Lukaku's £75 m move to Manchester United wouldn't have happened if it was not for a series of events that could be traced back to spot of "voodoo".

'If I tell you what we offered him, you won't believe it, and we offered him an even better deal.

He said: "The situation with Romelu was not financial".

Everton majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri has promised to stop speaking to Sky Sports presenter Jim White when he is "upset" at night.

'I wasted two summers to keep him: first summer with his agent, him and his family we managed to keep him.

Said spokesperson told BBC Sport: "Romelu's decision had nothing to do with voodoo".

'He distances himself from these beliefs and this statement and will now see what judicial steps can be taken in relation to them.

'He simply had no faith in Everton and no confidence in Mr Moshiri's project.

"The issue was his brain had gone".

"He wanted to make the next step in his career and wanted the security to be able to leave".

Moshiri said Lukaku then "called his mother" before the player revealed he had received the message telling him to join Chelsea.

However, Moshiri claims that money had nothing to do with the move and Everton made him an incredible offer to stay with the club.

Following a bright start to life at Old Trafford, Lukaku has struggled to score goals at United in recent times, despite consistent backing by manager Jose Mourinho. To buy Rom now would be £120m. He was in LA [with Paul Pogba] and he wouldn't come back.
