Chelsea boss Mourinho happy for Lukaku over Everton move

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says Romelu Lukaku joins Everton with their best wishes.

Mourinho believes the deal is good for all concerned.

He told a press conference in Holland televised by Sky Sports News: "He wanted to play for Chelsea but wanted to be the first choice striker. That's very difficult to promise.

"Everton made an important offer and financial fair play is something that is always behind the thoughts of the board...this leaves Chelsea in a great position.

"The important thing is he's happy and things work well for him, he's a good kid."
