The 24-year-old enjoyed yet another prolific season in the Premier League, notching 25 goals to take his tally to 85 in the competition in 186 appearances. Hypothetically, that leaves just two options: Chelsea and Manchester United. The Red Devils' manager, Jose Mourinho, is also keen on the forward.
The Belgian was speaking after their worldwide friendly victory over the Czech Republic on Monday night and has always been touted to return to Chelsea. Early Tuesday morning, Lukaku announced he and another club have reached an agreement.
Despite heavy rumors of his return to Stamford Bridge, Lukaku has ties to Old Trafford as well.
The Toffees are in an interesting state of Premier League limbo - good enough not to worry about relegation but not good enough to mount a serious challenge for a top six finish.
The joke on social media right now is that if you need a Belgian player to open up, send them on worldwide duty and simply wait for the quotes to come rolling out. "I know what I want to do, and whenever something happens, you guys will know".
"I don't want to stay at the same level".
He had already confirmed negotiations were underway about his future after he announced he wanted to play Champions League football next season and win the Premier League title.
On the topic of his Belgium team-mate's injury and the effect it could have on his upcoming season, Lukaku was full of confidence that Hazard would soon return to the form that saw him win Chelsea's player of the season award.
Lukaku has been reluctant to speak publicly about his long-term plans but has now revealed he knows where he wants to be playing in 2017-18.
Having rejected a new contract at Everton and making his desire to play at a higher level abundantly clear, the Belgian has been a constant source of speculation, with many believing that he will move on from Everton in the summer. "We'll see what happens".
"I know what's going on, but I'll let my agent [Mino Raiola] do the work", he was quoted as saying by Belgian daily Gazet van Antwerpen. As for the rest, I'm looking ahead.
