Batshuayi set to complete Monaco loan move

Michy Batshuayi is on the verge of completing a loan move to Monaco.

The Belgian striker has been on loan from Chelsea at Valencia, who have opted to end that season-long deal after he failed to impress.

He is now set to link up with Cesc Fabregas, who recently left Stamford Bridge to sign for Monaco.

Batshuayi, 25, has been unable to establish himself as a first-team player at Chelsea since being signed from Marseille in the summer of 2016.

The switch to Monaco will be his third loan move – he ended last season in Germany with Borussia Dortmund.
