Slav kills off striker loan rumour

Michy-Batshuayi-612149Slaven Bilic has all but dismissed suggestions that he holds a loan interest in one time taret and regular Chelsea sub Michy Batshuayi.

Newspaper reports arose a few weeks ago of a possible loan move to Upton Park but ClaretandHugh was told at that time there had been no contact although our insider explained: ” You can never say never but we don’t see Chelsea letting it happen.”

And the manager has confirmed that declaring: “It’s all stories. He was on a list of many, many clubs because of his achievements with Olympique Marseille. He’s a really good young striker.

“He was the subject of basically all the clubs that could afford him. He opted for Chelsea and that’s it. Ask him [about being frustrated on the bench]! It’s not frustrating for me!”

  1. It’s such a pity… Batman was my first choice along with Lacazette, I think he would have done well with us… but he did a different choice and now he’s sitting comfortably on the bench with a blanket around his legs cursing Diego Costa… lol 😉

    • Matte if Batsy had signed he would have been described as a Minger after 3 minutes so would Lacazette and anyone else that wasn’t 6 foot something,sprawled on his back in a hospital waiting room fiddling with his bun! But here’s hoping Batsy gets a bad case of piles and splinters after turning us down to sit on the bench 🙂

      • lol GW… you’re right, according to the experts our ideal striker has to play a couple of times a year, he has to spend his life in ortho but he has to make a lot of money… I want officially put my name in for that role… lool 😉

  2. Telboy with his weekly appearance to point out the spelling.
    Wanna buy a life Tel?
    Or better still just get one!

  3. Batshuayi imo wasn’t much of an upgrade if any on Sakho, when he has had his chances at Chelsea he has struggled so far, the same arguement as with Zaza may apply that he needs time but unlike Zaza he isn’t getting a starting place most games. Maybe he will start against us tomorrow ? If he does lets hope he has a shocker maybe scores an own goal COYI !!!

  4. As Slav said, this was never gonna happen. He would be admitting Zaza is off for a start. And why would we want to help Chelski develop their player so he went back to them better prepared to compete in the PL? He made his choice in the summer. First team football or warming the bench. So he can do one. Look at Moses Vs Tore!!!
