It is sad news to bring on the loan watch front as Michy Batshuayi confirmed that his season is ‘probably over’ in a tweet on Monday.
The Belgian had started life for Borussia Dortmund emphatically after departing from Chelsea till the end of the season in January.
Batshuayi scored nine goals in all competitions for Dortmund but in the 2-0 loss to Schalke on Sunday, there was even more bad news for the centre-forward as he was stretchered off in at the latter stages of the clash, suffering from a broken leg.
Well its not good news for now, my season is probably over, and i wont be able to pay @BVB back for their confidence … 😔 Thank you all the amazing amount of love I received since yesterday. Wishing my teammates the best for the final days. See you soon ❤ pic.twitter.com/GORkrFz9kk

There may still be a slim chance of the 24-year-old being available to be part of Belgium’s squad for the World Cup starting in June.
For now, Batshuayi will likely be heading back to Chelsea’s training facility in Cobham starting the rehabilitation process. Hopefully, the centre-forward can at least be ready to fight to earn a place in the Blues’ squad next season.
