Romelu Lukaku Net Worth

By Spear's

Belgian professional footballer and Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has an estimated net worth of £15 million.

Born on May 13, 1993, Lukaku joined his local team Rupel Boom at the age of five. After four seasons at Rupel Boom, Lukaku was discovered by scouts of Lierse SK, a Belgian Pro League team with an established youth academy.

He now plays as a striker for Premier League club Everton and the Belgium national team.

He is one of only five players to score 50 Premier League goals before his 23rd birthday.
How did Lukaku make his millions?

Lukaku played for Lierse from 2004 until 2006, scoring 121 goals in 68 games. He subsequently earned a move to Anderlecht of the Belgian Pro League in 2006. Lukaku made his professional debut while still at school at the age of 16, and became the 2009–10 top scorer in Belgium as Anderlecht won the Belgian championship.
Lukaku made his senior international debut for Belgium in 2010, and has since earned over 50 caps
He also won the Belgian Ebony Shoe in 2011.
In the 2011 summer transfer window, Lukaku joined Premier League club Chelsea. He didn’t show up routinely in his first season there, and spent the accompanying two seasons on loan at West Bromwich Albion and Everton respectively, signing permanently for the latter for a club record £28 million in 2014.
That same year Lukaku was named by The Guardian as one of the ten most promising young players in Europe.
He has also represented the country at the 2014 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2016.
