Deciphering emojis is the new age of journalism

Michy Batshuayi and his Twitter game have entered the wild transfer saga between Chelsea and Tiemoué Bakayoko.

Chelsea’s summer transfer window has been relatively quiet in terms of actual acquisitions, but rumors are flying left and right about potential arrivals and signings. One transfer that’s been rumored to happen for more than a month now is Bakayoko arriving from AS Monaco. It’s a deal that’s been thought to have been finished, then rumors of Manchester United butting in popped up. The latest update we’ve seen is that the Blues have reportedly won out thanks to a £40m bid, with a medical scheduled for tomorrow (Friday).

In fact, Bakayoko has been spotted in London tonight (Thursday) after posting a picture earlier on his Instagram story about traveling to London on the Eurostar.

Given all the rumors, Batshuayi took to Twitter as curious as any Chelsea fan around the world wondering what the situation was, sending the ‘eyes’ emoji in the Frenchman’s direction.

The Monaco midfielder responded with an all-emoji message of his own.

To which Michy laid out the question we all want to know. In the form of emojis, of course.

Official millennial translation: “So, are you signing or not? I’m nervous over here.”

Bakayoko only responded with the “thinking man”... Hmm...

The two ended this insightful discussion by wishing each other good night.

Lips sealed, but the secret’s out of the bag at this point.

Batshuayi, Bakayoko, doing announcement videos better than any actual announcement video!
