Chelsea name price for star player


West London outfit Chelsea have reportedly named their price for Michy Batshuayi ahead of the coming summer transfer window with a number of interests already coming in for the star player.

It is now obvious that the Blues team are ready to part ways with him and he could as well leave Crystal Palace where he is currently having a loan spell after joining in January, during the winter window.

However, it is claimed that Chelsea have placed a £40 million tag on Michy Batshuayi and from all indications, Crystal Palace will not be able to meet with the asking price because of their small transfer budget.

This, therefore, means that Michy Batshuayi might be heading to the Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan as they are reported to be keen on his signature while they will face competition from other top European sides.

Michy Batshuayi has been impressive so far this season and his quality is not in doubt owing to his contribution to the Crystal Palace team. He has been able to score three goals in 11 appearances since joining in January.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace will be ready to land Michy Batshuayi a permanent deal but the Blues team will have to come down with their asking price.
