BVB chief Watzke shows concern about Batshuayi's form - FCNaija

German Bundesliga By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 12/02/2018

Borussia Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke is concerned about the form Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.

Batshuayi is on loan at BVB to the end of the season and the Belgian striker is in tremendous form scoring three goals in his first two games for the German outfit.

The BVB board wants the Chelsea striker to remain with the club but his contract does include a buy-back option which the Blues is likely to take advantage of if Batshuayi continued to bang in goals at this rate.

Chelsea offer huge deal for Bayern Munich midfielder Vidal 

Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has confirmed that there is no buy-option: “We tried our best to get a permanent option for Michy Batshuayi, but it was a no-go for Chelsea. When Roman Abramovich says ‘no’, it is a ‘no’”. 

"There is always a chance," he told Sky Deutschland, though admits Batshuayi's impressive form could work against them.

"If he scores in every game, it will be difficult."

Batshuayi wanted a World Cup slot in the Belgian national team knowing so well he has to compete with Manchester United Romelu Lukaku, Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke and Liverpool striker Divok Origi who is on loan at Wolfsburg.
