‘I’ll discuss it with my agent’ – Chelsea striker delivers Euro giants transfer boost after hinting at summer exit
Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has revealed that he is not prepared to accept another season on the fringes of the first team.
Batshuayi stated that he cannot afford not to play first-team football with the World Cup looming.
The Belgium international underlined that he must be prepared for the World Cup next year and did not rule out a loan move.
Batshuayi said he would hold talks with his agent and Chelsea regarding his future.
“No, no, no. Everyone knows that I have to play more, that I have to score goals. There’s a World Cup coming up next year. I want to be ready for the World Cup,” he was quoted as saying by the Guardian.
“But I’m not going to ask anything. I’m going to listen to what they are saying. They are the boss, not me. And afterwards I’ll discuss it with my agent and the club. Amicably, as friends of course. A loan? That’s not up to me. That’s up to them. They take the decisions, not me.”
The latest developments will come as a transfer boost for Fenerbahce and Galatasaray who want the Blues striker.
Neither side however, wants Batshuayi on a permanent deal which makes his openness to a loan move all the more attractive.
Galatasaray and Fenerbahce would only be able to sign the 23-year-old on a temporary move considering their current financial constraints due to Financial Fair Play.
AMK report that talks between Fenerbahce and Chelsea are progressing.
Per the source, the Blues are open to loaning the striker out this season.
Turkish-Football recently reported that head coach Igor Tudor will be able to pull some strings with his former Juventus teammate and current Chelsea boss Antonion Conte.
