Michy Batshuayi has admitted that he is “expecting” some phone calls about his future beyond the summer transfer window.

The Chelsea striker found his first-team opportunities at Stamford Bridge to be significantly restricted last season after he arrived at the club from Marseille last summer.

Indeed, Batshuayi only started one Premier League game for the Blues as he struggled to break into the first team under Antonio Conte.

The Belgian forward did play a significant role in helping Chelsea win the title, however, as he scored the goal which clinched the Premier League trophy at West Brom.

His lack of playing time last season has inevitably led to speculation linking him with a possible move away from Chelsea this summer.

And the striker has admitted that he will have to think about his future in the next few weeks.

Batshuayi told RMC Sport as quoted by Metro: “I’m not the master of my destiny. Chelsea bought me, they can do what they want with me.

“I’m going to finish with the national team and then I expect I’ll have a few phone calls. I’ll see with my agent and the club.

“I want to play, score as many goals as possible and be at the World Cup.”

Chelsea missed the chance to win a domestic double this season when they were beaten by Arsenal in the FA Cup final last month.
