“Even if we have a one per cent change, we’ll keep trying.

Chelsea loanee and Fulham star Lucas Piazon has confirmed a potential comeback to Stamford Bridge next season, “as I have been doing for the last few years” after joining the current Premier League champions in 2011.

The 24-year-old, who suffered a serious injury earlier during the season, told ESPN Brazil: “To speak of next season, I think it’s still a little early. We are in the middle of March, there is still much to happen,” 

“Usually what happens is that I end up going back to Chelsea, in July I’ll present myself there, and then we’ll see. We see what is best, as I have been doing for the last few years. I think that’s the way it’s better, you have more time to figure it out, look for a nice place to go”.

Piazon, who spent several seasons on loan at Malaga, Vitesse Arnhem, Reading and Eintracht Frankfurt, added:“I don’t know, maybe I stay here at Fulham.”

Michy Batshuayi admits he was lacking confidence at Chelsea while now, at Borussia Dortmund, he plays full of it.

The Belgian striker arrived to Stamford Bridge in summer 2016 and despite playing an important role in last title campaign never had full trust by manager Antonio Conte, who rarely started him in the 18 months he coached him.

However, Batshuayi has been showing all his qualities since he moved on loan to Borussia Dortmund, where he has already scored 5 goals in only 3 games.

The 24-year-old forward took a swipe to his former boss, Conte, claiming he just needed more playing time:

“I don’t know if Conte was watching my game,” said Batshuayi.

“Sitting on the bench, score a goal and then back to the bench is quite difficult to deal with for an attacker.

“It wasn’t always easy at Chelsea. I’m now playing with a lot of confidence.

“They are focusing on the Premier League and have an important Champions League tie next week. I hope it turns out well for them.”

During today’s press conference to preview the game against West Bromwich Albion Antonio Conte was asked if he regretted letting Michy Batshuayi go on loan to Borussia Dortmund in light of the revelation that Alvaro Morata’s back injury could be a long-term one.

The Italian boss took a moment to compose himself before sinking his face into his despairing hands then replied:

 

“Now the transfer market has finished,” said Conte, upon regaining his composure

“We took the decision and now this is not important to say, we could do this or the other. Now we have to finish the season in the best possible way.”

Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda has joined Celtic on an 18-month loan deal, the clubs have announced.

Musonda, 21, stayed at Stamford Bridge in an attempt to break into the first team rather than leaving on loan last summer, and signed a new deal until December 2022.

But he has since made just 7 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions, only 2 of which were starts.

Chelsea believe that working under former Blues academy coach Brendan Rodgers could kickstart Musonda’s senior career in football.

Celtic published an official statement that read:

“The Belgian Under-21 internationalist has been a much sought-after player in this transfer window, with many of Europe’s top clubs keen to take him on loan,” a Celtic club statement said of the move.

“However, both the player and his parent club believe that his football development will be best served at Celtic Park under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers.”

Sevilla are confident of securing a loan move for Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.

The Belgian striker has made only two Premier League starts this season with most of his appearances coming in the cup competitions or off the bench.

Blues boss Antonio Conte would likely be open to letting his forward leave this month, but only with a new signing to replace him, so to avoid leaving himself short of attacking options in the second half of the campaign.

Both clubs are in talks over a loan deal for the former Olympique Marseille forward and Chelsea are ready to give it the green light dependent on them bringing in their own forward reinforcements.

Batshuayi has still managed to score seven goals in 19 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea, but he is unlikely to become a regular starter in the West London side under Conte.

The Belgium international is eager to get some playing time so to be in contention for a place in Belgium squad for Russia 2018 World Cup.
