A move back to Inter Milan is believed to be the most likely destination for Lukaku, with his lawyer exploring the possibility of a deal with the Serie A side.

Martinez is confident that Lukaku will make the best call for his career, telling reporters: “He wants to be important and enjoy his football. I’m sure the decision in the summer will be the right one.

“In Belgium, we are quite relaxed with Romelu’s situation. I know it is a big topic, but at the moment he is trying to recover from the injury and that’s the only thing he has in his mind.

“If he stays at Chelsea it will be for the right reasons. If he’s moving away it will be because everyone agrees to it.

“Romelu is a player I know very well. I managed him at the club level (at Everton) at a very young age.
