The Spaniard admits it is ­unlikely the Belgium striker’s season-long loan from Chelsea will become a permanent deal next summer, even though he would love to keep him.

Lukaku, who faces Stoke today, is a fans’ favourite at Goodison Park this season with his all-­action style and seven goals.

The Blues believe he will be ready to lead the line at ­Stamford Bridge next season, though the 20-year-old might still decide he needs to move on.

Despite the likelihood of ­losing the powerhouse next summer, Martinez (right) said: “We will find another Romelu, don’t worry.

“Chelsea rate him really highly and made a massive investment on a player they always felt was going to take three, four, five years to be ready for them.

“We are just happy to have Romelu. All I want is for him to develop a good memory at ­Everton, nothing else.
