CHELSEA will slash the asking price on Michy Batshuayi in a desperate bid to avoid losing the striker for nothing.
Stamford Bridge chiefs wanted £40million for the Belgian in the January window and that was his peak valuation as the cost will drop in the summer.
But noises coming from the 26-year-old’s camp suggest he will run down his deal in London and look to cash in personally when it expires in 2021.
Batshuayi could then get a big-money contract in China or the Middle East as a free agent.
And that is going to mean Chelsea have to wait for him to walk out of the door for nothing, unless they substantially cut his valuation before then.
Meanwhile, the Blues have joined the chase for Amiens striker Serhou Guirassy, 23, and will watch him next weekend.
It will be just the start of a monster £300m summer spree overseen by boss Frank Lampard.
