Chelsea signed Michy Batshuayi in the summer of 2016 and the Belgian played a bit-part role in the Blues’ title success last season.

The 24-year-old scored nine goals in 27 appearances last term – playing second fiddle to Diego Costa – and is now back up to £60m summer signing Alvaro Morata.

Having started only two league games this season and being linked with a move away from the club, Sky Sports pundit Tony Gale thinks Chelsea will be making a mistake as in the case of Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah who are making headlines for Manchester City and Liverpool respectively, by selling Batshuayi.

“I think he’s really struggling now,” Gale said on Sky Sports.

“I think it’s got to the stage where you know it isn’t going to work for him.

“But, it might be another one of those cases like Salah, like De Bruyne, where it doesn’t work at Chelsea, goes to another club, and all of a sudden you’ve got a player.

“But at Chelsea, he hasn’t really shown anything to be honest.

“He’s finding it difficult in a side where he looks like he doesn’t feel like he belongs.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
