Despite ending last season as Chelsea’s title-clinching hero, speculation continues to circulate as to Michy Batshuayi’s immediate future at Stamford Bridge.
The Belgian striker made just one Premier League start in his debut season and as such, he was simply assumed to be surplus to coach Antonio Conte’s requirements heading into the next — with a summer switch to West Ham being widely mooted.

However, Batshuayi himself has said that he doesn’t intend on leaving the club he joined for £33 million just one year ago anytime soon, at least not while the Blues are quite literally in his blood.
As if you hadn’t already guessed from his pained expression, the forward duly confirmed that he doesn’t really like needles.
