While there are a number of clubs that are interested in signing Michy Batshuayi, it’s unlikely that any of them would come even close to meeting Chelsea’s asking price for the striker. West Ham, Crystal Palace, Leeds United, Newcastle United as well as Serie A club Atalanta have all been credited with an interest, but with Chelsea trying to recoup most of the fee that we paid in 2016, no one has taken the bite yet. The problem has been further exacerbated by COVID-19, with most clubs being understandably frugal in their transfer spendings this summer.

As a result, there is a strong possibility that Chelsea could choose to extend Michy’s contract, which expires in 2021, and send him on loan, and then try to sell him next summer in better economic conditions.
