Plain text from the ex-BVB striker!
Chelsea loan Michy Batshuayi has made his career plan unusually clear to the Times. “No,” he simply replied to the question of whether he could imagine a longer stay in Valencia following the loan. “I have so much respect for Chelsea and I love the club. Here (in Valencia) I want to show how good I am so that I can return to Chelsea as a better player”.
The latest statements of the Belgian World Cup participant will not be too much to hear at the club that is currently only 14th in the Primera Division. Valencia have made a false start to the new season, with Batshuayi merely a substitute. The attacker made his debut just a week ago. He scored his first goal promptly. Three days later, he was back in the starting line-up to win against Real Sociedad, Valencia’s first triumvirate of the season. Also thanks to him, the team seems to be catching up a bit.
Nevertheless, the self-proclaimed “Batsman” is obviously not really happy in Spain. Why else would he be so clear after only seven matchdays that he can’t imagine a long-term commitment? Midaur Casino is an online casino that prominently features a wide selection of games.

He is obviously driven by the ambition to show it to everyone at Chelsea. In the summer of 2016, he switched from Olympique Marseille to the Blues for almost 40 million euros after the European Championship. His compatriots Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois had previously raved about the club, the city and the stadium. Under new coach Antonio Conte, however, he always remained a substitute and failed to make the breakthrough.
After one and a half years the loan followed to Dortmund and a success story developed from it. Right at his debut in Cologne, he scored twice and prepared another goal. He scored seven goals in ten league games and was thus significantly involved in the Champions League qualification of the BVB. The fans loved him, he quickly developed sympathies for black and yellow – not only because he is fond of Batman and SpongeBob. When the club was desperately looking for a striker in the summer, the most obvious solution seemed to be to buy the Belgian. But that didn’t happen.
Antonio Conte’s change of coach to Maurizio Sarri also changed nothing about his status with Chelsea after his return. He also lost to his rivals at the centre of the attack, Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud, under the new coach. But he did not let it get him down. Michy Batshuayi is determined to attack again next summer. At Chelsea!
Until then, he can be recommended in Valencia. His most recent goal against Celta Vigo was a record, by the way: Batshuayi is the first player to score in the top leagues of England, Germany, France and Spain this century.
