Chelsea intend to delay the sale of Romelu Lukaku until after the World Cup.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea already value the 20-year-old striker at in-excess of £20million there is a sense at Stamford Bridge that his price tag will inflate significantly if he has a productive tournament in Brazil.

The Blues are in no huge rush to part with Lukaku, who is currently on loan at Everton, this summer given he still has two years left on his contract and know they could maximise the forward's earning potential after the World Cup.
