Everton have recieved a lot of backlashes and criticism for letting Lukaku go without giving it a fight, Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino pointed out that Everton greatest mistake is letting go of Romelu Lukaku. Farhad Moshiri, the majority shareholder of Everton, with 49.9 per cent stake made the claims on Tuesday at the Merseyside club's annual general meeting. Moshiri revealed the bizarre reason why Everton could not persuade Romelu Lukaku to stay leave last summer. Lukaku turned down a £140,000-per-week contract. "I can assure you we tried everything to keep Romelu. If I tell you what we offered him you wouldn't believe it. We offered him a better deal than Chelsea and his agent [Mino Raiola] came to Finch Farm to sign the contract. Robert Elstone, Everton's chief executive was a wutness, everything was in place, there were a few reporters outside, then in the meeting Romelu called his mother. He said he was on a pilgrimage in Africa or somewhere and he had a voodoo and he got the message that he needs to go to Chelsea." “The issue with Romelu was not financial. As long as I am major shareholder financial issues are irrelevant. I wasted two summers to keep him, first summer with his agent, him and his family we managed to keep him. The Belgium international has been angered and sad by Moshiri claims and he's reportedly considering legal action against him. He met with his legal advisers to discuss the matter on Wednesday A representative for the player told BBC Sport: “Romelu’s decision to move away from the Meyserside in June had nothing to do with voodoo. He distances himself from these beliefs and this statement and will now see what judicial steps can be taken in relation to them.” He concluded by saying: "Romelu is Catholic and voodoo is not part of his life or his beliefs." It's logical to say Romelu Lukaku left Everton because he was ambitious. It was revealed that Lukaku rejected the opportunity to become the club's highest paid player as his eyes and mind were set on playing at the highest level possible and winning laurels. “He simply had no faith in Everton and no confidence in Mr Moshiri’s project. That is why he did not want to sign on any condition. He wanted to make the next step in his career and wanted the security to be able to leave.” According to reports, Moshiri has subsequently said he is "planning to contact Lukaku to try to smooth over the upset created by his comments, claiming that he had not meant to offend the player." We also cannot rule out the possibility of the Voodoo claim being true, but it seem more like a fab. If Lukaku move out of Everton was facilitated by a Voodoo, why did he end up at Manchester United and not Chelsea. On a lighter note. Well, if he was told by a witch doctor to move to Chelsea and he ended up at Manchester United, he should remember Emmanuel Petit of France. French World Cup winner said he ignored advice to sacrifice a cow to ward off the evil spell only to see injuries wrecked his playing career. What are your opinion on the Voodoo claims?
