Belgian forward, Michy Batshuayi has completed a loan move to join German Bundesliga side, Borussia Dortmund for the remaining part of the season after club top striker, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang sealed his transfer to the Premier League in a £56million club record deal to Arsenal.
In a triangle of transfers, Chelsea needed to release Batshuayi to Dortmund after Aubameyang deal was completed although they were demanding for France International, Olivier Giroud from the Gunners.
After Giroud’s move to the other side of the capital has been done and dusted, Batshuayi was released to move to Dortmund on loan for the next six months.
He has struggled to secure a regular role at Stamford Bridge under Manager, Antonio Conte as it seems the Italian doesn’t have him in his plans despite his important goals, one of which sealed the League for the Blues last season.
The former Marseille striker has scored 12 goals with two assists in 26 appearances this term although more than half of those were times he came from the substitute bench.
As there are still few more hours to the closure of the transfer window for Premier League clubs, the deadline for transfer in the Bundesliga was 5 pm and Dortmund was clearly excited to have completed the forward signing at 4:48 pm, only 12 minutes before the end of transfer activities in Germany. He is now likely to make his debut in their League clash at FC Koln on Friday.
