Michy Batshuayi has agreed to join Spanish club Valencia on a season-long loan from Chelsea. The striker, who spent the second half of last season at Borussia Dortmund, is moving to La Liga in search of regular football.
New Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri could not guarantee Batshuayi he would start games with record signing Alvaro Morata staying at the club.
Having gone to the World Cup with Belgium and impressed at Dortmund, Batshuayi did not want to start this season on the substitutes’ bench.
Chelsea will receive a large loan fee for Batshuayi and have not included an option for Valencia to buy him at the end of the loan.
Batshuayi’s decision to go could mean Tammy Abraham, who has spent the last two seasons on loan at Bristol City and Swansea City, remains at the club.
