I would like to know more about this question aswell, as if it is true, it would seem to lend support in my view of the writings of Alice A. Bailey, as they would then seem more of an extension of the teachings as put forth by K.H and M. as it was said many times that what was revealed by H.P.B was not by any means complete.

Good question. Lutyens is not generally very reliable when it comes to old style theosophy, so she probably got it out of the besant leadbeater rumor mill. Perhaps some old article by one or the other.
It's not in the Inner Group Teachings, which means that if Blavatsky did tell some of her students this, it was in an informal setting, not in the setting of a formal studygroup. We're in the same bag on this one as on the Bowen Notes: said to be a report of something Blavatsky said, but we don't have the sources to back it up. Nor are we likely to get to such sources.
That isn't to say it's certain to be untrue.
One thing we do know: IF Blavatsky talked about such a teacher, as Besant said, she expected him later than Krishnamurti came.
