Batshuayi Suspends Chelsea Plans Till After Russia 2018
Michy Batshuayi has revealed that he is more focused on earning a place in Belgium’s final world cup squad before considering his long-term future at the club level.
The forward joined Borussia Dortmund on loan from Chelsea in the January transfer window and made a big impression in the Bundesliga, scoring 7 goals in 10 games before his season was cut short by injury. The Belgian has been tipped to remain at Stamford Bridge with Conte expected to leave this summer.
However, Batshuayo does not want to think about his club career at the moment with his focus solely on playing a part for Belgium in Russia next month.
“Dortmund was a great experience for me,” he said in a chat with news conference. “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.
