Michy Batshuayi agreed to join Valencia on loan after Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri explained that he would only play a minor role at Stamford Bridge this season.

The Chelsea boss had initially planned to make Batshuayi a key part of his plans, but decided otherwise after taking a closer look at the Belgian striker.

Batshuayi, who adopted the nickname of & # 39; batman & # 39; During his loan in Borussia Dortmund last season, he hinted that his move to Spain was close to tweeting an emjoi bat with an ellipsis on Friday afternoon.

A number of other clubs across Europe were interested in taking a loan to Batshuayi after impressing by scoring nine goals in the back-end of last season for Dortmund, but opted to go to Valencia with the ambition to play football regular in La Liga.

The 24-year-old will spend the entire season in the La Liga team, but there is no option to include the change permanently in the deal.

Maurizio Sarri initially had Batshuayi as part of his plans, but now he has changed his mind.

STATISTICS OF BATSHUAYI THE LAST SEASON

(For Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund)

Games: 40

Goals: twenty-one

Assists: 3

Sarri managed to strengthen his Chelsea squad with two newcomers this week at Kepa Arrizabalaga and Mateo Kovacic, but fans will be puzzled by his decision to allow a forward to leave the club before the start of the season.

Álvaro Morata has not yet managed to set the world on fire after a disappointing campaign last season and Olivier Giroud represents the only main rival to lead the Chelsea attack.

However, Batshuayi's move gives Tammy Abraham his chance at Chelsea, with Sarri having the Englishman back Morata and Giroud.
