The Belgian international is on his way to Chelsea after announcing he will leave Marseille this summer.
“This should be formalised tomorrow, but I am going to leave Marseille this summer,” Batshuayi wrote on Twitter.
“First of all I want to especially thank the supporters of Marseille – during these two years within the club I loved since I was little you showed me all your love and support.
“It is a great honour for me to have worn this shirt at the Velodrome, a stage you knew how to make beautiful with this unique atmosphere in France.
“I thank the leaders of Marseille for trusting me and the technical staff with whom I worked, who helped me a lot to mature and to make progress.
“I have evolved in a season under coach [Marcelo] Bielsa. It has been a privilege and I’d like to accomplish everything he told me I can in the rest of my career.
“I hope I can continue to make you proud in my new club and I will continue to follow very closely Marseille’s result, and I hope they get the results they so richly deserve.”

Nani revealed: “Renato would have been a great signing for Man United. I have no doubts. But he had a choice – and the choice he made was Bayern Munich.
“I hope he has made a good choice and that he is happy in his career, but I think United will now know what a big player they have missed.

“It is good to see another young player want to be a star and to achieve his dreams. You must be like that. You can’t be afraid of anything – and he isn’t.”
