Chelsea fans ought to be thankful that Michy Batshuayi has only left the club on loan – he could have been gone for good.
Frustration among fans following Batshuayi’s departure is understandable. Out of the four strikers that Maurizio Sarri had within his ranks, the Belgian is the most reliable when it comes to finding the back of the net.
Chelsea needed to shift one of them, though, and Batshuayi was the man they chose. He will spend the 2018/19 season on-loan with Valencia, where we’re sure he’ll succeed, as he did at Borussia Dortmund.
Though loaning him out wasn’t ideal from a Chelsea perspective, Batshuayi had the option to leave permanently, according to ESPN. Sevilla were thought to be interested in signing the Spongebob aficionado.
Batshuayi instead signed for Valencia on a season-long loan without an option to buy, meaning that he DOES have a future at Stamford Bridge. All things considered, this is the best case scenario.
