Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has been linked with a move to Belgium side Anderlecht, but the 26-year-old responded with a tweet to those rumours back in September.

Batshuayi has again brushed off any possibility of joining Anderlecht and insists it’s not the right time for him to return to Belgium:

“I have been very clear.

“Clearer than my tweet isn’t possible? I don’t think I’ll play for them [Anderlecht].

“Even my manager and parents wouldn’t accept that. I’m not going to say too much, but it’s not the right time to come back to Belgium.”

Batshuayi spent time on loan with London side Crystal Palace last season, and he hints that if he leaves Chelsea, he could make a likely move to join Palace or any London side.

When Het Laatste Nieuws asked Michy about ‘London clubs’ specifically, he said:

“Exactly. You have now given the answer yourself.”

Batshuayi has been very much involved this season at Chelsea and he has impressed Blues boss Frank Lampard, although he has failed to find a way to overtake the in-form Tammy Abraham as he’s the second choice striker for Chelsea.

Batshuayi has revealed he has been developing different sides of his game under Frank Lampard.

“He has been very involved, and put a lot of work in,” Batshuayi told Chelsea’s official website.

“He emphasises the defensive work and the physical work a lot, which has been very interesting for me.

“He’s a very simple guy. He doesn’t speak a lot. Sometimes when he wants to have a laugh he tells jokes, but he knows when he needs to be focused and when he wants to relax.”
