Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne are part of Chelsea’s plans for the future, according to Jose Mourinho.

In this morning’s press conference, Mourinho said, “I think they are ready, I think they are ready to be part of Chelsea.”

That’s welcome news for both Belgium footballers. Lukaku had an explosive season on loan at West Bromwich Albion where he scored 17 goals in 20 league appearances for the Baggies. Attacking midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has been on loan at Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga, where he scored 10 goals in 33 league appearances.
