  • United chief Ed Woodward has in the past boasted about the number of members they have

Belgium worldwide Batshuayi scored 10 goals for the Blues last season before a loan move to German side Borussia Dortmund, where he managed nine goals in 14 appearances.

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has confirmed that he is on his way to Valencia with a cryptic post on his Twitter page.

Batshuayi joined Chelsea from Marseille for £33 million in 2016 but found Premier League minutes hard to come by, with Antonio Conte favouring Diego Costa and often deploying Eden Hazard as a false No. 9.

Batshuayi's departure would now give the 20-year-old Tammy Abraham - a subject of an interest from Aston Villa - his chances, but only after Morata and Olivier Giroud. He would go on to score a cumulative seven goals in ten appearances.

Zouma joined Chelsea from Saint-étienne in January 2014 and made 71 appearances for the Blues first team.
