Considering how well he played for Chelsea when called upon, it’s no surprise Michy Batshuayi is having the time of his life at Dortmund since joining the Bundesliga club on loan until the end of the season.
With three goals in three games, the Belgian striker is trying his best to show Roberto Martinez why he should be picked ahead of the likes of Divock Origi and maybe even Christian Benteke to go to Russia, and his new club are already said to be wanting to make the move permanent somehow.
However, according to DH, that problem could have been sorted out in January, as Dortmund wanted to add a buy-out clause in the temporary deal.
The only way that would have happened was if Chelsea were allowed to include a ‘first refusal clause’, as they wanted to avoid the same mistakes that were made during the Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku sales, now at Manchester City and Manchester United respectively.
That never materialised, and Batshuayi will now return to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, where his future will probably be tied to Antonio Conte’s.
If the Italian stays (which seems highly unlikely), then the young forward will need to go elsewhere, as the former Juventus manager appears to have little faith in his abilities.
