Batshuayi Parents: Everton emailed the Chairman about a transfer but he won’t speak to us
The parents of Michy Batshuayi have accused the Standard Liege chairman Roland Duchâtelet in the Belgian press of pushing their son out of the club and that they have seen an email from Everton with regards to a transfer of the player but the Chairman won’t return their calls about it.
Batshuayi has been linked with Everton all summer and Roberto Martinez is desperate to add quality to his strike force to help the burden on Romelu Lukaku. The club are close to sealing the loan move of Ivorian Lacina Traore and are interested along with Arsenal and Banfica in 20 year Belgian Batshuayi
Belgium daily Het Laatste Nieuws delivered quotes from Batshuayi’s parents on Tuesday on the current current status of their son:
To be perfectly honest, we often have the impression that the president is pushing our son to the exit door. Our manager has confirmed to us that Everton have contacted him, because Mr. Duchâtelet was contacted directly by email from Everton about the possibility of a transfer. We have also seen that e-mail.
Since the beginning of the whole affair, we have made repeated attempts to reach [Mr. Duchâtelet] by telephone, but he hasn’t answered our calls.
