Romelu Lukaku has confirmed that he wants to leave Everton in order to win titles.
Lukaku joined the Toffees from Chelsea, initially on loan, in 2013 before making it a permanent arrangement ahead of the 2014-15 season.
Despite the club's struggles on the field this season, Lukaku netted 25 goals and he has been heavily linked with a return to Chelsea, while Manchester United have also been credited with having an interest in signing the Belgium international.
His father has already suggested that he will leave Goodison Park before the start of Euro 2016 and, while he plans to hold talks with Everton’s new majority shareholder, Farhad Moshiri, the striker admits he is preparing to leave the club.
"I'm at a point where I have to make a good career choice," Lukaku is quoted as saying in the Daily Star.
"We have a new investor at Everton and out of courtesy I will listen to what he has to say. But I have my own ideas in mind. I want to win titles.
"I have had a very good season, but it is time for me to write myself a CV. That is why I play football.
"I got that trophy-winning mindset from Chelsea.
"People in Belgium don't see me playing for Everton, but I am respected by fans, managers and experts like Jamie Carragher, Graeme Souness and Thierry Henry."
