Federico Pastorello intends to discuss the future of the Belgian at the club with the new owners this summer. It comes ahead of a potentially huge transfer window, with several clubs linked with a move for Lukaku.
Pastorello said: "I'm not the one to discuss technical choices, but it is obvious that there was a problem. The numbers, however, must be weighed: he [Romelu Lukaku] is the best scorer of the team this season, even with a lower playing time compared to his teammates.
"The situation must be carefully evaluated. Now there's a Champions League spot to secure and the FA Cup final: Romelu is totally focused on that, we have not talked about anything else.
"It's nonsense to speculate on negotiations: Chelsea have just defined the takeover of the club, we still don't know our new interlocutors, let alone if we can hypothesise talks with Inter, AC Milan or whatever. We have to be patient and wait."
