Chelsea news: Michy Batshuayi provides update on Blues future

MICHY BATSHUAYI has responded to questions about his future.

The Belgium international was sent to Borussia Dortmund on loan on deadline day, in a move which triggered a hat-trick of major transfers including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Olivier Giroud.

Since he touched down in Germany, Batshuayi has scored four goals in his first three matches.

The 24-year-old netted a brace to secure a 3-2 Europa League win against Atlanta last night.

But there is uncertainty surrounding his future beyond the end of the season.

Batshuayi will still be under contract with Chelsea but if current boss Antonio Conte remains in charge then he may have to look elsewhere for regular football.

But the Italian’s position is under mounting pressure and the striker has not ruled out a full-time return to Stamford Bridge.

“I’m not thinking about that at all,” Batshuayi told ESPN.

“For me, it’s important to perform well for Borussia Dortmund in every match anew. I’ll deal with the situation as it comes.”

Batshuayi has quickly settled into Bundesliga life and he now hopes to fire Dortmund to silverware this campaign.

“They all welcomed me here with open arms,” he added.

“The entire staff and the team made it very easy for me and I have a good translator by my side.

“I’m feeling very good at the moment.

“It was an important win for the team. We’re trying to win every match and to continue to our good run.”
