Chelsea not keen on Batshuayi loan deal – Monaco chief

Chelsea are seeking to sell Michy Batshuayi on a permanent deal rather than loan out the striker, according to Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev.

Blues fans can take advantage of Betfred promotion code 2019 to place a bet on where Batshuayi will end up, as well as various other Chelsea-related bets. 

Batshuayi, who scored the decisive goal in Chelsea’s 2016-17 title win under Antonio Conte, spent the second half of last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund and the first half of this campaign at Valencia.
