Batshuayi remains in limbo over his future at Chelsea
- Michy will return to Chelsea in the summer.
- The Belgian could be kept at the Bridge for the next season amid standing transfer ban.
- The 25-year-old is yet to hold talks with the Blues regarding his future.
“No [I have not spoken to Chelsea about my future],” Batshuayi told Goal. “I will go back to Chelsea to decide but at the moment I do not know more.”
Batshuayi joined Crystal Palace on loan until the end of the season in January where Batsman featured in 10 Premier League games, scoring five times. The latest brace came on the final matchday when the Eagles beat B'mpouth 5-3 at Selhurst Park.
“Of course [I have enjoyed my loan]. I am very happy because I had never scored here at this stadium [Selhurst Park],” he added. “It was my first goals at Crystal Palace’s stadium. Of course, I am very happy to have come here, it has been a good experience.”

Following the B'mpouth showdown Palace manager Roy Hodgson confirmed his interest in signing the 25-year-old either on-loan or permanently.
“We don’t know [if Chelsea’s transfer ban will affect a move]. All I know is if Michy Batshuayi is going to be available and if our club could bring him here; either on-loan or buying him I would be very happy with that and I know Michy himself would be happy,” Hodgson told Goal.
“When players belong to another club you can say “we would like him” but then there has to be an agreement struck between the two clubs.”
Can Sarri relly on Batshuayi as on the Blues first-choice striker next season?
