The 11-goal striker is rumoured to be in demand, but his coach has no plans to part ways with the 22-year-old

Marseille coach Michel has insisted that reported Juventus and Tottenham target Michy Batshuayi will not be sold in the near future.

The Belgian, who has scored 11 goals in 19 appearances this season, has been linked with a series of top European sides, but the Spanish boss maintains the club has no wish to sell their in-form striker.

“You want to kill me!” Michel is quoted as saying by Maxifoot. “I don't think about Michy leaving. If we're going to sign anyone it'll be an addition, not a replacement.”


Toulouse striker Wissam Ben Yedder has been touted as a Marseille target for some time, but Michel refused to be drawn on the rumours.

“I heard [Ben Yedder] is valued at €10 million, but I will only comment on my own players.”
