Lukaku has no Chelsea regrets: I could've signed for Ajax or Lille

Romelu Lukaku has again declared he has no regrets joining Chelsea.

The striker has struggled to make an impact since last summer's arrival from Anderlecht.

"I could've made an intermediate step to a club like Ajax or Lille, but I wanted to go to the top and my transfer fee also could only be afforded by the biggest clubs," said Lukaku.

"The year in England has given me peace. I had to get away from all the fuss and hypocrisy in Belgium."
