Michy Batshuayi reveals: This player was my idol when I was growing up


Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi admits it is a "childhood dream" to finally make a move to Stamford Bridge.

The 22-year-old became the club's first summer signing after agreeing a five-year deal with the club.

He joins from Olympique de Marseille but says people should not compare him with Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.

He also says Brazil's Ronaldo was his idol when he was growing up.

"It feels fantastic to be here, it's a childhood dream for me," he told the club's official website.

"It's wonderful. It's very big and you feel that you've joined a club that really want to win.

"They [Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois] told me I was joining a magnificent club with a magnificent stadium and magnificent fans.

"I'm very young and still have progress to make but I'm a very technical player and like to use both feet.

"The Brazilian Ronaldo [was my idol when I was young]. He was a phenomenal player.

"[Following in the steps of Didier Drogba?] We are different people, I totally respect the career Didier had at Chelsea and I am going to do my best."
