Michy Batshuayi’s time at Chelsea is coming to an end. According to information from the newspaper ‘HLN’, West Ham is the main interested in relying on the services of the Belgian. In this way, Michy would arrive to reinforce the Hammers’ attack.
The player’s contract with the Blues finishes in June 2021 and there shouldn’t be a new contract ahead. For the English team, the player had his ups and downs, but never pleased.
In 2016, the athlete was hired from Olympique Marseille. At the time, the Blues paid € 33 million for a 5-year contract.
For Chelsea, Batshuayi played 77 games, scored 25 goals, and became Premier League champion in 2016-17. However, in the last seasons, the player ended up on loan to clubs like Borussia Dortmund, Valencia and Crystal Palace. However, he honestly didn’t have good performances in any of those.
Also according to information from the Blues board, the athlete will probably be out of their plans for next season and can be sold in the next transfer window. However, if West Ham wants to stay with the athlete, they will have to pay around £ 40 million.
In the current season, the striker played 24 games and scored six goals with the Blues shirt, before the English Championship was paralyzed by the Coronavirus pandemic.
It is worth mentioning that there is no specific date for the return of the tournament, but Chelsea intends to cut any financial loss at this time. Because of that, they intend to get rid of some players who are at the end of their contract and have not played what was expected of them at Stamford Bridge.
So the club’s board welcomes West Ham’s interest in Michy Batshuayi. So, trading can take place as soon as the championship returns, and the transfer window is open.
