Chelsea starlet, Charlie Musonda may have to wait until next season before he gets a chance to prove his worth to coach Jose Mourinho, according to reports. News coming from the Blue side of London indicate that Chelsea are currently considering loaning the highly-rated academy product out for the next one season, in order for
him to gain first-team experience and build match fitness.
Mourinho appears keen to graft him into his first-team; but, as with all academy players, would as a principle subject the player to the loan ‘wilderness test’, before granting him a chance to fight for a Chelsea first-team shirt.
Having almost concluded plans to join sister club Vitesse Arnhem on a season-long loan, the player allegedly balked; and insisted on joining a different club. Arsenal, who once tabled an £8 million bid for the 19 year-old- which Chelsea rejected, as well as French giants Marseille, who are keen admirers of the youngster, have reportedly been in touch with the Blues over the player’s signature. However, as it stands, it appears that the player favours a move to France instead; and having already agreed to a move to Marseille, the negotiations between both parties are expected to be rounded off soon
