Batshuayi decision on future after WC

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi says he doesn’t know where he will play next season and doesn’t want to think about it until after the World Cup.

The 24-year-old striker left the Blues to go on loan to Borussia Dortmund in January, to fill the gap left by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and hit the ground running in the Bundesliga. He scored seven goals in 10 league appearances for the BVB.

The Belgian is expected to return to Stamford Bridge for next season, but Dortmund may be eager to hold on to him. Either way, Batshuayi insists he is only focused on Belgium’s World Cup campaign at the moment.

“Dortmund was a great experience for me,” he told a press conference. “They welcomed me very warmly. I was in a good environment and you could see that on the pitch.

“It was a while since I had played so much. I can’t remember being allowed to play two games in a row at Chelsea. It was good to gain confidence.

“I don’t have a preference; they’re two beautiful clubs. My focus is on the World Cup right now and I don’t want to think about what happens afterwards.”

The striker was called up to manager Roberto Martinez’s provisional Belgium squad ahead of the World Cup, but the final 23 players are yet to be confirmed.
