Chelsea are expected to complete plenty of business this summer, with the Blues being linked with a wealth of incoming and outgoing transfer dealings.
The future of Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi continues to attract speculation, with the forward enjoying a successful stint on-loan at Borussia Dortmund in the second half of the season after struggling for opportunities at Stamford Bridge.
Dortmund are keen on signing Batshuayi permanently this summer but the final decision is likely to be down to whoever Antonio Conte’s predecessor at Chelsea is and whether fellow forward Alvaro Morata is on the way out.
Batshuayi, for his part, has insisted he’s open to both opportunities and stated that a final decision will not be made until after the World Cup. Quoted by The Evening Standard, he said:
“Dortmund was a great experience for me. They welcomed me very warmly. I was in a good environment and you could see that on the pitch.”
“It was a while since I had played so much. I can’t remember being allowed to play two games in a row at Chelsea. It was good to gain confidence.”
“I don’t have a preference; they’re two beautiful clubs. My focus is on the World Cup right now and I don’t want to think about what happens afterwards.”
