Belgian Turns down bumper Chelsea transfer

    Out-of-favour Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has hinted he could stay at Stamford Bridge next season this summer, after turning down the chance to join Turkish giants Fenerbahce. The Belgium international struggled for regular first-team football under Antonio Conte last season following his £35million arrival from Marseille, reports Talksport.

According to France Football, via Le 10 Sport, Turkish giants Fenerbahçe have reportedly approached the striker with a tantalising offer to link up with them next season - with a salary offer worth in the region of €4m-a-year.

However, the striker has refused to join the Turkish club after expressing his desire to stay with Chelsea and prove himself next season.

The Belgium striker struggled to work his way into the Chelsea set-up under boss Antonio Conte, but with the club missing out on Romelu Lukaku, relinquishing Diego Costa and struggling to acquire a leading man so far this summer Batshuayi could be of mind that he will finally be given his opportunity.

Batshuayi may not have been a popular figure on the field for Conte, but he was an off-field hit with the Blues faithful and he will always be remembered for scoring the crucial title-clinching goal for Chelsea at the Hawthorns last season.
