Newcastle plotting a surprise summer raid on Chelsea this summer

Chelsea’s loaning policy is about to affect one of their most important players this season.

The Blues who run a policy of signing some of Europe’s best youngsters and then loan them out for more first team opportunities are set to push more players out this season. And that group could include this season’s hero, Mitchy Batshauyi.

The Belgian scored the goal that helped the Blues clinch the league title this season, but that was the only major impact he made as the form of Diego Costa forced him to remain on the bench for most of the season.

Newcastle, who are back in the Premier League have shown a willingness to sign the attacker who top scored for Marseille in the French league before moving to London last summer.

The Magpies boss, Rafael Benitez has been assured of funds to sign his major target this season and wants to make Batshauyi his first signing.

The striker is open to a move away from Chelsea but has admitted that wherever Chelsea send him to, he would go.
