New Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho dealt a blow to West Bromwich Albion by confirming he expects striker Romelu Lukaku to be part of his first team plans next season.
Lukaku was West Brom's top goal scorer while on loan with them last season with 17 goals in 35 league appearances.
In his first press conference since rejoining the London club, Mourinho said Lukaku "was ready to come and be part of the [Chelsea] squad" next season.
