Marco Reus urges Borussia Dortmund to seal permanent Michy Batshuayi deal

Michy Batshuayi has conceded that he is happy at Borussia Dortmund at the moment, but remained coy on his long term future.

Antonio Conte chose to let the Belgian worldwide go out on loan in January and he has made an instant impact in Dortmund, scoring seven goals in nine games.

Batshuayi has plundered seven goals in nine matches since he completed a six-month temporary switch from Stamford Bridge to Dortmund, with braces against FC Koln, Frankfurt and Atalanta all proving to be decisive in helping his new club achieve victory in those three contests.

He said: "I'd be very pleased if Michy were to stay".

'He showed how important he can be for us.


Dortmund manager Peter Stoger has granted the forward the responsibility in attack he once enjoyed at Marseille since he came to the Westfalenstadion, and Batshuayi has repaid that faith with much-improved form.

Bild quote the Belgian himself as saying: "I feel very good here, but that's a matter between Dortmund and Chelsea".

"It's clear that we will have a good setup for this position next season", he said, deflecting a question about Batshuayi's future.

Chelsea have reportedly slapped a £53m price tag on Michy Batshuayi's head.

Batshuayi has now been encouraged to stay at Dortmund with one of the club's oldest player requesting the administration to convert the loan deal into a permanent one.
