The 24-year-old scored twice in Chelsea’s 3-0 victory over Newcastle United in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday, but after the match, Antonio Conte admitted that he was unsure if the striker would remain at Stamford Bridge.

“If the club decides to add another player, then, I don’t know if Michy wants to stay, or wants to go on loan,’ said the Italian. “In this case it would be a player decision, not my decision.”
