Although Michy Batshuayi ended his debut season at Stamford Bridge on a good note by scoring 4 goals in his last 5 appearances, his future remains a mystery. It is believed the club are still deciding on whether to send him on loan next season, or keep him around, much of which will probably depend on Diego Costa's future.

For Michy's part, he's willing to do whatever Chelsea deem best for his career. Speaking ahead of our FA Cup finals against Arsenal (and thus unaware of our disappointing fate) to Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad, the 23-year-old said he would be open to a move on loan next season.

“Honestly, I’m not trying to think too much [about my future]. We still have a match and I’m trying 200 per cent. After that it will up to the board and the coach to make a decision. I’m a player and I’ll go wherever Chelsea sends me."

The latest reports claim French club AS Monaco and local rivals West Ham would be more than happy to count with Michy's services next season. Newcastle United, who have already added signed Christian Atsu from Chelsea, are also interested according to the Chronicle. (Newcastle have also been mentioned in connection with Tammy Abraham, so some loan deal is likely go down one way or another.)

Michy will certainly have a plenty of options to choose from should he head out on loan. Wherever he lands will hopefully help him become an important player for Chelsea in the future.
