- Journalist claims that Michy Batshuayi has suffered a broken leg.
- Batshuayi could be set to return to Chelsea for treatment.
- No official confirmation of this news has been provided at this time.
Earlier today we brought you the news that Chelsea loanee Michy Batshuayi had been stretchered off during Borussia Dortmund’s Bundesliga clash with Schalke.
The sight of the Belgian leaving the field on the stretcher was met with great concern from us Chelsea fans, who are all hoping to see Batshuayi push former Blues’ striker Romelu Lukaku for a starting spot at the World Cup.
Well, if seeing Batshuayi on a stretcher was enough to keep you up tonight, this latest update on the situation will provide you with no respite.
Sports journalist Mootaz Chehade posted on Twitter claiming that Batshuayi had in fact broken his leg. Chehade insinuates that his loan with Dortmund will subsequently be cut-short and he will return to Chelsea for treatment.
Michu Batshuayi will return to Chelsea from Dortmund after the striker broke his leg today against Schalke.

We await official confirmation of what would be utterly devastating news. Batshuayi will likely keep us in the loop via his Twitter account. We’ll be the first to let you know if someone brings his phone to the treatment table.
