Batshuayi has already started Premier League competition with the Blues and already made five league appearances and scored once. Though, he is a great striker at the time being but also struggled to play with the Conte’s first team. Besides, he is not the first choice of Antonio Conte but Diego Costa is.

But, Conte who spent almost £33 million to tie down this striker would not want him to leave. He stated that Michy Batshuayi is very young and talented player who would improve his playing style in future and probably become a great player. So, he is not planning to sell him out so early but to use him properly.

Chelsea is his 3rd professional club and also is the biggest challenge for him and he also desperately wants to show that he is worthy for the best XI. He has made seven international appearances with the Belgian national team and netted thrice times so far.
