​Burley: Chelsea will pay £80m for Lukaku? Pay another £20m and go for Spurs' Kane!

Former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley has rubbished the mooted £80m transfer of Romelu Lukaku to the Blues.

The Everton striker has admitted he wants to leave Merseyside this summer, with Chelsea and Manchester United viewed as favourites for his signature.

But Burley, who made 112 appearances for the Blues, believes that his former club may as well spend extra to buy Tottenham forward Harry Kane.

"What are they saying the fee's going to be? £80million?" Burley said on ESPN FC.

"If it was me, and I don't think they would get them and they probably wouldn't, but I would go with another £20million or £10million to Tottenham and say 'give me a price for Harry Kane'."
