Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi received a fair amount of trolling on Friday afternoon after posting a funny tweet for Kurt Zouma.

Zouma, 22, today joined Stoke City on a season long loan and signed a new long term contract at Stamford Bridge.

Returning from a cruciate knee ligament injury, the young French defender made only three Premier League starts last season.

Following the £34m signing of Roma's Antonio Rudiger, it was decided that it was in Zouma's best interest to spend the season on loan at a fellow Premier League club.

Zouma was signed as a teenager from Saint-Étienne in 2014 but, like many young wonderkids signed by Chelsea, has failed to make his mark in the first team.

Batshuayi is renowned for his excellent use of social media and was quick to share a funny message following Zouma's departure.

Known for his rash tackling, the 23-year-old Belgian international urged Zouma not to "two foot" him if they face each other.

Batshuayi started only one Premier League game last season and opposition fans were quick to remind him of this.

Alvaro Morata's expected arrival will do little to help the Belgian's hopes of becoming the first choice hitman in West London.

The chances of them facing each other is made even more unlikely by the Premier League rule forbidding loan players to face their parent clubs.

One West Ham fan understood Batshuayi's tweet completely differently, seeing it as a hint of a Chelsea exit.

Batshuayi's future

Signed from Marseille for £33m, Batshuayi must be wondering whether Chelsea is the right club for him.

Antonio Conte recently revealed that he had decided to sell Diego Costa in January but handed Batshuayi just one start all season.

“I don’t like to talk about players who are not here," said Conte. "The only thing I can tell you, in January, the Costa situation was very clear, for the club, for him and his agent. For me the situation is closed.”

Chelsea's first choice striker looks certain to be sold but recent history suggests Conte has very little faith in the Belgian hitman.
