PHOTOS: Chelsea Forward Photographed Wearing Another Team's Jersey During 5-a-Side Game

It has been a long and frustrating season so far for Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi.


The Belgian striker has played just 109 minutes of Premier League football since his £33m move from Marseille last summer.

Batshuayi has been unable to oust Diego Costa from the starting line-up and his lack of substitute appearances suggest that Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is not his biggest fan.


The 23-year-old is unsurprisingly, being linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer, and hasn't helped the speculation by being photographed wearing another team's jersey.


The forward was pictured wearing a Galatasaray top, with Jason Denayer's name on the back.

Denayer was on loan at the Turkish side last season, and must surely have given his national teammate the shirt.


The photographs were shared by Twitter user ​@ibsede on Monday.


Even more strangely, Batshuayi was snapped whilst playing 5-a-side with a group of friends.

Another session of indoor football would also mean that the former Marseille man will have played more 5-a-side football this year than he has in the Premier League.


Batshuayi had an impressive goal scoring ratio last season in Ligue 1, netting 17 times in 36 league appearances. The striker has also received nine international caps, and was part of the Belgium side who travelled to Euro 2016 last summer.


Batshuayi is expected to leave Chelsea at the end of the season, with PSG and West Ham both rumoured to be interested in securing his services.
