引用Moshiri told an Everton shareholders’ meeting on Tuesday that Lukaku turned down the offer of a lucrative new contract at Goodison Park last summer after his mother had allegedly been on a "pilgrimage to Africa" and received the message he should go to Chelsea.
According to Moshiri, the Belgium striker had wanted to join Chelsea at the time but ended up moving to Manchester United for £75 million. But Lukaku’s representatives flatly rejected Moshiri’s claims, insisting the player was a Catholic who did not believe in “voodoo” and that he left Everton to further his career after having “no confidence” in Moshiri’s plans.
A representative for Lukaku said: “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.
