Football Transfers: Chelsea Loan Out Michy Batshuayi
Valencia have concurred an arrangement to sign Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi on credit until the finish of the season.
Michy Batshuayi-Atunga is a Belgian national and a professional footballer. He currently plays for the Belgian national team and Chelsea as a striker.
Unlike Kovacic’s loan Michy Batshuayi’s loan to Valencia won’t have an option to buy next summer.

This move was quite expected from Chelsea as ‘The Blues’ manager, Maurizio Sarri had previously accepted that his squad was too big, and that he was eager to let some players leave before the end of this month.
Batshuayi joined Chelsea two years prior from Marseille, and etched his name in the Stamford Bridge folklore, when he scored an extraordinary goal in the dying moments at West Bromwich Albion to help his team towards the 2016/17 Premier League title.

The Belgian scored in all six of the competitive tournaments in which he played last season.

Be that as it may, the Belgium star has never figured out as how to position himself in the starting line up at Chelsea. This is also one of the reasons as to why he was previously credited to Borussia Dortmund for the 2nd half of the last season.
Looking forward to reading @mbatshuayi 🦇⚽️ tweets as he bangs the goals in for Valencia this season. Good luck Michy, shame there wasn’t time this summer to see if it could have worked out with Sarri. I guess we’ll never find out now. pic.twitter.com/lPI2lGJoYg

And now with Michy Batshuayi’s departure, Chelsea’s manager, Sarri is left with Olivier Giroud, Tammy Abraham and Alvaro Morata, as the perceived first-group strikers who would now take up the charge in the upcoming Premier League season.
Our best striker, @mbatshuayi, has joined Valencia on a season-long loan. Our. Best. Striker. Good luck, Batsman.

Gutted @mbatshuayi is off to Spain 😩 Thought he’d smash it for Sarri this season, great goal scorer just needs a chance to prove it!
