Michy Batshuayi suffers suspected ankle break in derby match vs Schalke

The Belgium global, on-loan at Borussia Dortmund from Chelsea, suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to Schalke.

Batshuayi injured his left ankle late in Dortmund's 2-0 defeat at Schalke on Sunday and left the stadium in Gelsenkirchen on crutches.

Batshuayi is expected to return to Chelsea for the remainder of the season in hope that the medical team at Stamford Bridge can get him back to fitness as soon as possible.

Initial reports suggested that the Belgian frontman was expected to miss out on his nation's trip to Russian Federation for the World Cup this summer, but the North Rhine-Westphalia-based club announced via their official Twitter page that although his domestic campaign is over, the striker's global dream may not be.

It is sad news to bring on the loan watch front as Michy Batshuayi confirmed that his season is "probably over" in a tweet on Monday.

Dortmund's statement confirming Batshuayi's injury said it was "in the realm of possibility" he could recover in time for the World Cup.

"Thank you all the wonderful amount of love I received since yesterday".

All eyes will now be on whether Batshuayi can be fit to take his place in Belgium's squad for the World Cup this summer. Wishing my team-mates the best for the final days.

Michy Batshuayi has enjoyed some good vital game time during his time on loan at Dortmund, scoring seven Bundesliga goals in the process.
