Romelu Lukaku is on the brink of signing a new contract at Everton, this agent has told talkSPORT.
Lukaku’s current deal at Everton expires in 2019 and the striker has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park.
But, when asked if he is going to pen a new contract the Belgium international’s agent, Mino Raiola, replied: “Yes.”
And when pressed on whether an agreement is close to being secured, Raiola added: “99.99999999!
“We are signing a longer contract, so that is for sure the intention [to stay].
“In football, contracts are not there to be going until the end sometimes, but there is always two parties in the deal.
“If everybody thinks it is better to move on, then that will be done at that moment. But for this moment, he is signing a contract with Everton.”
Lukaku signed for Everton from Chelsea on a permanent basis in 2014 and he has scored 60 Premier League goals in 129 appearances.
