Romelu Lukaku defends ambition, says decision already made on Everton deal

Ahead of the release of Sony Pictures' new film 'Life', Everton's players take on a challenge that's out of this world.

Romelu Lukaku confirmed that a decision on Everton's offer of a new contract has been decided, while defending his "ambition" to win trophies.

After Lukaku's agent, Mino Raiola, claimed last month a new deal was "99.9 percent agreed," sources confirmed that the player had told Everton he would not be signing the offer, while the club held out hope for a resolution.

But speaking to reporters while with the Belgium national team, Lukaku left no doubt his mind is made up.

"The decision has already been made so I can't talk about that," Lukaku said of his future at Everton.

Lukaku then defended his "ambition" -- one week after criticising Everton's desire to sign top players and push for honours.

"There is nothing wrong with ambition. You have to embrace it and where you are as a footballer," he said. 

"I've made a long way until now but the road is still long and I know I have to improve and get better. I want to help Everton as much as I can, as well as the national team. I think a lot of stuff can be achieved.

"Sometimes people will mistake things that I say but it's just ambition that I have; I want to win titles and trophies and I don't think people should take that as arrogance -- people should embrace it.

"This is what footballers need to achieve if they want to become the best, and I think young kids need to learn that too."
