Michy Batshuayi is set for a sensational £33million transfer to Chelsea – and Tottenham fans took to Twitter to express their dismay.
It is said that Batshuayi will leave the Belgium squad preparing for Friday’s Euro 2016 quarter-final against Wales to sign a five-year contract with Chelsea.
The 22-year-old will become the first signing of incoming manager Antonio Conte, who is currently managing his national side, Italy at the European Championships in France. Batshuayi’s national side Belgium could yet clash with Conte’s Italy as both look to progress further on into the tournament.
As the news broke, the White Hart Lane faithful were not too pleased with his decision as they felt the lure of Champions League football would be enough to secure his signature.
Here is a selection of their reactions on Twitter:
So we mess around on Batshuayi, get screwed, mess around on Janssen up next with PSG coming in for him, we will end up with sanabria

Ppl go on about top players wanting Champions League but really big money is always the clincher. Look at Batshuayi & Chelski. Mm.
