Michy Batshuayi reacts to reaching 500,000 followers on Instagram following his Chelsea transfer
Michy Batshuayi has sent a message to his Instagram followers after the new Chelsea signing reached 500,000 followers on the photo-sharing app.
The Belgium international has quickly settled into life in the west London side’s squad following his £34m switch from Ligue 1 side Marseille earlier this month.
Batshuayi was the first of Antonio Conte’s summer signings before the Italian head coach signed N’Golo Kante in a £30m deal from Premier League champions Leicester City.
The 22-year-old centre-forward was a second-half substitute in Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over Liverpool after Gary Cahill’s tenth-minute winner at the Levi Stadium in Pasadena.
And the Chelsea signing, who scored 17 times on 36 Ligue 1 appearances for Marseille last season, was thrilled to reach a new landmark on the photo-sharing app.
Batshuayi posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:
“We’ll have a party all together ahahaha ❤ Thx everyone for the support !!”
The Belgian forward netted 26 times in 62 games in Ligue 1 for Marseille during two seasons at the French club.
Chelsea will take on Real Madrid in their second International Champions Cup game in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon.
