Michy Batshuayi talks about his Chelsea future after scoring 2 goals against Newcastle

Michy Batshuayi has admitted his Chelsea future is uncertain as a January loan move looms.

Chelsea are willing to let Batshuayi leave Stamford Bridge this month, provided they get a replacement in, despite his two goals against Newcastle United in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday.

The Belgium striker, 24, is wanted by Sevilla and has also been considered as an option for Borussia Dortmund.

‘I work everyday and today I am very happy here,’ Batshuayi told BT Sport on Sunday.

‘I don’t know (on my future), it’s better you speak to (Antonio) Conte.’

But when asked about the Belgian forward Conte dismissed suggestions he was ready to be offloaded.

‘First of all I’m very happy for him and then I am for the team because we won the game and are into the next round,’ he said.

‘Scoring goals is important for strikers’ confidence. My task is to keep every single player happy and with Michy I think we are doing a good job.’

Manager Conte hinted earlier this week that he would allow Batshuayi to spend the rest of the season elsewhere if the conditions are right.

The Italian said: ‘I think he wants to have the opportunity to play with regularity. I think this is right. ‘One player goes out, one player comes in. One player comes in, one player goes out.’

Batshuayi has 19 goals in 18 starts at Chelsea but has failed to impress for much of his time in London, with his statistics boosted by 35 substitute appearances.

Sunday’s brace saw him score his ninth and 10th goals of the season.

Chelsea would like Edin Dzeko from Roma to join before letting Batshuayi go and negotiations are ongoing.
