Everton have offered Lukaku a deal worth £140,000 a week but the striker wants to keep his options open.
Talks between Everton and Lukaku regarding a new contract worth £140,000-a-week broke down on Tuesday (14 March), with the Belgian global once again stating his desire to play Champions League football.
The expectation was that Lukaku would swiftly put pen to paper after the player's representative, Mino Raiola, twice went public with how close he felt the deal was. "No-one should worry, he's our player".
The former Chelsea and Manchester United midfielder said: "The only thing I can think of personally is it might be one year too many".
Lukaku has been strongly linked with a move in recent days thanks to ongoing contract negotiations with Everton that seem to have hit a brick wall.
