Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has ruled out his side making a move to sign Michy Batshuayi this summer.

Arguably the most successful period of Batshuayi’s career was at the Westfalenstadion. Though he only spent a short period in Dortmund’s starting eleven before his season was derailed by injury, he was one of the hottest strikers in Europe at that time.

The idea of sending players out on-loan is for them to gain first-team experience, develop as a footballer and prove that they can handle the responsibility of playing at this level. Batshuayi ticked all the boxes during his brief stint in the Bundesliga.

Chelsea may be better off keeping hold of the Belgian next season, especially considering how much Alvaro Morata has struggled since his arrival from Real Madrid. Thankfully, a return to Dortmund looks to be off the table for Batshuayi.

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc is quoted by the Metro admitting that his side are in the market for a new striker, but Batshuayi is not going to be returning:

“We are searching for Mister X, but it is not Michy Batshuayi.”
