Batshuayi Responds to Rangers Transfer Report

Michy Batshuayi has denied rumors of a Rangers move and reaffirmed his commitment to Fenerbahce until the season’s end.

Despite tentative interest from Rangers in the Scottish Sun, Batshuayi will not be their marquee January signing.

Batshuayi told Beyav TV: “I am here until the end of the season. My priority is to make Fenerbahce champions. Then we will talk to the president. I want to stay in Fenerbahce. Of course, if Real Madrid calls, things may change.”

While manager Philippe Clement hunts for another striker following Sam Lammers’ loan departure, the one-time £33 million hitman won’t be joining the Rangers revolution. However, Batshuayi’s future beyond that remains unsealed.

Contract talks with Fenerbahce have stalled, prompting the 30-year-old to ponder his options. Securing his spot in Belgium’s Euro 2024 squad is paramount, and playing time is key.

Despite the chatter, Batshuayi insists he’s not forcing his way out of Istanbul this month – unless, of course, the mighty Real Madrid come calling. That dream scenario aside, Fenerbahce will be his battlefield for the remainder of the season.

The Belgian’s declaration brings closure to the Rangers intrigue, but leaves his long-term future wide open.

Will he rediscover his scoring touch in Turkey, earn a new Fenerbahce deal, or embark on a fresh challenge after the summer? Only time will tell.
