Michy Batshuayi completes the season loan for Valencia from Chelsea Bleacher Report

Matt Dunham / Associated PressValencia confirmed Friday that he had reached an agreement with Chelsea for the engagement of Michy Batshuayi on a one-season loan, according to the club's official website. Belgium has spent the second half of last season on loan to Borussia Dortmund before his The national campaign ended prematurely due to injury. Now he will go to Spain and join the team of Marcelino who finished fourth in the Liga last season that secured him a place in the UEFA Champions League. The writer Andrew Gaffney said the loan includes the option for Valencia to sign Batshuayi permanently: Andrew Gaffney @GaffneyVLCThis * is * an option to purchase a clause for Valencia to make Batshuayi loan permanent: € 50 million (through @Generaldepie_) https://t.co/miJySVQ7VBNizaar Kinsella of Goal said that there were other Liga clubs interested in Batshuayi: Nizaar Kinsella @NizaarKinsellaMichy Batshuayi virtually confirmed, a good test, especially for marketing reasons. He chose Valencia on Sevilla because of the Champions League offer. Also Atletico was enthusiastic. #CFC https://t.co/y3LpadNG56It seems a good move for Valencia which has experienced a strong season under Marcelino the last time and will try to progress further. They will also need reinforcements as they return to the Champions League. Batshuayi is a lively presence on offense and is a useful finisher. He scored seven goals in 10 appearances with Borussia Dortmund last season before suffering an ankle injury. The decision to let him leave will be seen as a risk by Chelsea fans. They could let them fight for next season's goals, according to Kinsella: Nizaar Kinsella @NizaarKinsella I think the goals will still be a problem this season. Maurizio Sarri needs to solve it on the training field. Not only Morata, but every single player, will have to be more clinical than last season. The pre-season did not provide promising signs in this regard. #CFCThe striker Alvaro Morata has not managed to live up to its price of 60 million pounds since he arrived from Real Madrid in the summer of 2017. The Spanish national team found it difficult to go in his first season and lost the placed in the team for Olivier Giroud by the end of the campaign. Morata did not even seem to regain his best form in the pre-season. It was not convincing enough for Chelsea's defeat in 2018 against Manchester City on Sunday and failed to score. Giroud is another option, but it is not known as a prolific goleador. He will also turn 32 in September and is heading towards the end of his career. The club also has 20-year-old Tammy Abraham on the team. Probably will back up Giroud and Morata after the departure of Batshuayi. .
