Monaco & Marseille fighting Arsenal & Manchester City for Chelsea’s Charly Musonda

Charly Musonda is one of Chelsea’s hottest young properties at the moment. The 18 year old attacking midfielder from Belgium has received concrete approaches from AS Monaco and Marseille who wish to loan the player with an option to buy, according to a source contacted by Foot Mercato.

“There are big clubs like Manchester City, Arsenal and PSG who want a direct transfer. But there is also Monaco, Marseille and PSV who want to loan the player with an option to buy. Charly wants to play at the highest level next season and wants to go to a club where he can have guarantees in terms of playing time and of which will be of the same calibre as Chelsea. At The Blues, there are no guarantees, which is something that worries him, even if he is very attached to this club which has allowed him to discover a very high level.”

“Chelsea are open to letting him go, but not for less than €10m. And for the moment, Manchester City are ahead of Arsenal, PSG are a little less forceful in this transfer. You have to say that PSG are waiting to see what the FFP sanctions are and which players leave.”

“Today, he is keeping all options open, but a departure to a big club is a big possibility. Now, we need Chelsea to find an agreement with these big clubs. If not, he will without a doubt go on loan to PSV. It is really a top Dutch club, that play an attractive style of football and who play regularly in Europe. For those reasons, they have an undeniable advantage on Monaco and Marseille, who are also very interested.”
