Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

Recommended Posts

€40m deal with Marseille according L'equipe.

He's having his medical tomorrow apparently and will sign on a five year deal.

Hopefully he turns out as well as the last striker we signed from Marseille.

Just googled him, and The Guardian is saying Palace have signed him, and the Mail and Independent saying Spuds have signed him, with Sky saying West Ham are closing in on him.

 

Anyway, if true, interesting we're signing a young Belgian striker for almost the same amount as we sold our own, more prolific, young Belgian striker.

 

Progress eh?

 

Also, would a big money striker coming in suggest that we're going to play a 3-5-2?

Sounds like bollocks, multiple different sources saying he signed for Spuds, Palace and Chelsea within a few days? 

Also can he even have a medical with us right now when he's playing in a tournament?

Just a side note here.

Pretty sure he's left footed, however, in his highlight videos he takes penalties with his right foot. If this is in fact true, at least he could bring some versatility to the front line.

Honestly know zilch about him. Hear good things about his potential to be world class, but that's about it. I hope we don't sell traore.

Deal done. Marseille accepted Palace's 31mill bid for him but we did what we did with Willian and offered 33m and that turned his head.

Glad to see we have finally started our summer activity

We've got a good record signing young raw strikers from Marseille.

Be interesting to see if that means Costa is heading off or if it means we won't be pursuing Morata or perhaps neither.
