Chelsea could soon be seeing Michy Batshuayi back at the club with noises of discontent coming out of Valencia over their loan-deal and the striker’s form.
 
Valencia’s manager Marcelino has openly suggested to reporters via FourFourTwo, that the future of Chelsea’s on-loan striker Michy Batshuayi could be up in the air with the La Liga club;
 
At the right time will analyse the final situation and we will decide [what to do with Batshuayi].”
 
There is a transfer [clause], I do not know what the situation is contractually, but for all parties who want to leave, we will look for what is best for Valencia and thus the appropriate decisions will be made.”
 
The 25-year old has been pretty underwhelming in La Liga this season with just one solitary goals in 13 league outings, as well as two goals in six cup matches. It’s the league form that will be the biggest concern for Marcelino, who has seen the club slip to 15th – just four points above the drop zone.
 
In the past summer transfer window Chelsea were more than keen to see the Belgian international shipped out and even if he is to return prematurely, there’s very little indication that boss Maurizio Sarri will find a place for Michy Batshuayi in his first team plans.
 
Chelsea will be disappointed that things haven’t exactly been going to plan for the striker in Valencia, with there being a prior agreement in-place for the Spanish side to purchase Batshuayi – that no longer appears a likely outcome.
