Michy Batshuayi asked on international duty with Belgium whether he could put up with another season of sitting on the bench:
“No, no, no. Everyone knows that I have to play more, that I have to score goals.
“There is a World Cup coming up next year – I want to be ready for the World Cup.
“I’m not going to ask anything, instead I am going to listen to what they are saying. They’re the boss, not me.
“Afterwards I will discuss it with my agent and the club. Amicably, as friends of course.
“A loan? That’s not up to me. That’s up to them (Chelsea) they take the decisions, not me.”
“I have lived difficult moments but it is in times like these that you learn the most.
“When you are surrounded by top class players: Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard, all of them, you only can make progress in a situation like that.
“I haven’t played a lot but I managed to scored one of the most important goals (at West Brom, which clinched the title) and it gave me a boost – good for me, good for the team.
“Of course I wanted to play more and of course I wanted to score more goals, that is normal and all players want that.
“But we have become champions and that is really good for me – it is a wonderful experience.”
