Spanish loan for Batshuayi

Chelsea Football Club has today agreed terms with Valencia for Michy Batshuayi to join the Spanish side on a season-long loan.

The Belgian forward moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2016 and scored the goal which secured the Premier League title, away at West Bromwich Albion, at the end of his first season at the club.

Batshuayi spent the first half of the 2017/18 campaign with the Blues, scoring the decisive goal in an impressive Champions League win against Atletico Madrid, as well as a hat-trick in a League Cup tie against Nottingham Forest, before moving on loan to Borussia Dortmund, where he scored nine goals for the German side.

The striker was then included in Belgium’s squad for this summer’s World Cup in Russia and scored twice.
