Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has insisted that he will not accept spending another season on the Chelsea bench, report the Telegraph.

Batshuayi played less than 300 minutes of Premier League action in his debut season in England, but still managed to find the back of the net five times in the league. There can be no doubting that he is too good to waste away on the bench, and he appears to hold the same opinion.

The Telegraph quotes Batshuayi, who when asked about whether he could stomach another season out of favour at Stamford Bridge, provides a very unambiguous answer:

“No, no, no. Everyone knows that I have to play more, that I have to score goals. There’s a World Cup coming up next year. I want to be ready for the World Cup.”

According to the Telegraph, Batshuayi’s future at Chelsea could depend on whether Antonio Conte is able to secure the signature of Romelu Lukaku. The Telegraph note that both West Ham and AS Monaco are waiting in the wings to pounce if Batshuayi does get the green light to leave the club this summer.

  1. Michy Batshuayi is a very talented player. The big striker from Belgium had been immense for Olympique Marseille finishing as one of the top scorers in the Ligue One in France only behind star, experienced players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexandre Lacazette. Batshuayi was seen as the new Didier Drogba when he was coming to Chelsea last summer. He didn’t fail because when he was called upon, he was a great player during the season scoring a lot of goals considering the number of minutes he racked up. The problem isn’t Batshuayi’s form, it is the number of appearances that he is racking up because he barely started any games in the Premier League. Lets just hope he is either loaned out or given the chance to start more frequently next season.
