Chelsea owner stopped Michy Batshuayi from joining Borussia Dortmund permanently

The form of Michy Batshuayi since he joined Borussia Dortmund on loan from Chelsea has made many to consider that the Blues may have made a mistake in allowing the Belgian leave temporarily last month.

He has netted 3 times in his first 2 games for the German giants and he looks certain to return a proven goal scorer even though Antonio Conte still does not rate him.

Sun Sport is claiming that the Belgian’s move could have been a permanent one if not for the intervention of Roman Abramovich.

Per the reports, Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke said they wanted to sign the former Marseille striker permanently last month and they deal could have been completed but Abramovich intervened and blocked the permanent move.
The Russian is not known to intervene in his manager’s decisions, so this strengthens the claim that the Italian boss might not be the manager of the Blues next season.

Chelsea were also unwilling to sign a new attacker permanently last month as they believe their new manger may not fancy an attacker that Conte would buy.

If Batshuayi continues his hot streak of form, he would have proved Conte wrong as the Italian has never believe he could make it big as an elite attacker.
