There’s been a lot of speculation surrounding the future of Michy Batshuayi of late, as the Belgian has struggled for game time under Frank Lampard.

His time at Stamford Bridge appears to be coming to an end, which was further more emphasised when he was left out of the squad to face Liverpool altogether.

Rumours of him being used in a swap deal with West Ham to acquire Declan Rice also appeared, but that was put to bed when the player made it clear he didn’t want to join the Hammers.

Another team he won’t be joining is Club Brugge, as Het Nieuwsblad report on Thursday that Batshuayi ‘doesn’t feel much’ about returning to his home country in the foreseeable future.

The former Marseille star, who has never really managed to break through at Chelsea, ‘still hopes’ for a ‘big squad in a big league’, and that despite the fact he has barely played to showcase his ability this season.

Perhaps it might be time for him to lower his standards, even if just for a couple of seasons in order to get his career back on track.

That doesn’t mean he has to move to Belgium, but maintaining hope of European football when you’re barely playing at your current club doesn’t seem like a wise move.
