Michy Batshuayi ended the last season on a high and was really good for the club during pre-season, but he has been poor since the start of the season and doesn’t look like he can fight for a place alongside summer signing Alvaro Morata.
Eden Hazard has adviced Batshuayi to seek a new club if Chelsea succeed in signing Fernando Llorente.
Asked about Batshuayi’s situation at Stamford Bridge during his press conference with Belgium’s national team, Hazard said: “I spoke with him about it this morning.
“He is 23 years old. If he wants to progress, he must play.
“Especially if Chelsea sign Llorente, he will have less playing time.
“I am disappointed for him because he has had a very good pre-season.”
