Chelsea has demanded a high price for the sale of Michy Barshuayi, according to the report in the Sun.
The report says the Blues has placed a £45m price tag on the Belgian attacker.
The Am News learnt that, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa are interested in his services of the striker but Chelsea’s directors are making it tough for his suitors by demanding such a figure for the services of a player that is not a regular starter in Chelsea.
Chelsea is prepared for outright sale after Batshuayi has been sent out on loan, having spent some loan spell at Crystal Palace.
Aston Villa and Crystal Palace cannot meet such valuation, but the high price quoted for Batshuayi could be as a result of the £100m quoted for Wilfred Zaha.
AS Roma is also interested in his services, the Belgian will be out of contract in the next 18 months when he can go for free if a deal is not agreed on before the stipulated time in his contract.
