Michy Batshuayi has failed to impress since joining Valencia, and an early exit could be a possibility the manager Marcelino has suggested the club are ready to let Michy Batshuayi leaving after an underwhelming loan spell from Chelsea.

The Belgian joined Chelsea back in 2016 to significant fanfare after impressing with Marseille, but he has had little impact at the outfit.

The 25-year-old made only 28 appearances in his debut season at Stamford Bridge, netting nine goals, including the game-winner at West Brom that secured the Premier League title.

Just seven of those appearances were starts, with the Belgium international struggling to dislodge Diego Costa from the central striking role under former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

After again struggling for the regular time during the first half of the previous season Michy Batshuayi was shipped out to Germany with Borussia Dortmund on a temporary deal in the winter and scored seven times in 10 Bundesliga matches.

When asked about the striker’s future Marcelino did little to cool such speculation: “At the right time will analyse the final situation and we will decide [what to do with Batshuayi],” Marcelino told reporters.

“There is a transfer [clause], I do not know what the situation is contractually, but for all parties who want to leave, we will look for what is best for Valencia and thus the appropriate decisions will be made.”
