Jamie Carragher trolls Everton fans over Romelu Lukaku exit talk

The ESPN FC panel talk Romelu Lukaku's Everton situation as he has declined to sign a new deal with Everton.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has joked that he is the man responsible for persuading Romelu Lukaku to reject an offer of a contract extension at Everton.

Despite a new deal reportedly being "99.9 percent" done last week, Lukaku rocked the Toffees on Tuesday by declining the chance to become the highest paid player in the club's history.

After recently spending the day interviewing and training alongside the Belgium striker, Carragher took to Twitter to rib Everton fans.

Indeed, the ex-Liverpool stalwart claimed that it was his sage career advice that had caused negotiations to fall through.

Nice try Carra, but it's slightly more likely that Lukuka's burning desire to play Champions League football was a bigger factor in his decision than the sight of you in an Everton tracksuit.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
