Adidas insist they still believe in the talent of Chelsea youngster Romelu Lukaku.
"Romelu is still a great talent, just eighteen, and has the opportunity to develop as a player by going to a club like Chelsea. We support him in this, within our capabilities," said Ken Aerts, a spokesman for Adidas Benelux, to Voetbal Primeur.
"Chelsea are the right club for him. He can make the most of his talent there."
