The Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern had never expected him to leave…
Earlier this week, the Chelsea fans in the Tavern were rocked after a report linked second-choice forward Michy Batshuayi with a move away from Stamford Bridge.
Granted, the Belgian has yet to have much of a look in under Conte – given Diego Costa’s fine run of form – but the news still came as a shock to everyone in the Tavern.
Batshuayi had, in fact, been linked with a loan move back to his previous club, Marseille – a French side currently playing in Ligue 1.
The deal looked unlikely; and several days after the fact – it looks increasingly so.
As per the Guardian, Batshuayi is set to reject any chance of a move away in favour of a Chelsea stay. They add that the Belgian wants to fight for his place under Conte – and he is determined to succeed.
The Chelsea fans in the Tavern are delighted at the news, as they have been really impressed with what Batshuayi has done thus far.
One particularly vocal Chelsea fan by the bar has noted that Diego Costa’s proneness to injury and suspension mean the Belgian will get a chance eventually – he will just have to bide his time.
Batshuayi has looked good when given the opportunity so far this season, having already bagged 3 goals so far.
Our landlord is backing him to become a star in a Chelsea shirt.
