Manchester United target Chelsea starlet Charly Musonda

Charly Musonda

Chelsea starlet Charly Musonda is edging closer to a Manchester United transfer.

The highly rated Belgian is keen to play regular first team football and Chelsea have failed to provide him with chances.

The Belgian signed a new deal at Stamford Bridge after promises of first team opportunities, but the Blues have failed to deliver on those promises.

Musonda is a highly talented attacking midfielder who is expected to be develop into a player as good as Hazard and De Bruyne in future.

The U21 Belgian international is keen to leave and both Manchester clubs are interested.

According to Metro, the player wants a guarantee of first team chances and Louis Van Gaal is ready to give him assurances.

Furthermore, it is quite clear than Manchester United are more likely to give more chance to young players than their cross-town rivals who rely more on proven internationals.

Also, Van Gaal’s track record of trusting young players could be key to any potential transfer.

According to the report, Manchester United are close to a deal and that Old Trafford is his likely destination.

Chelsea are desperate to hold on to their prized asset but the fact that he hasn’t even trained with the first team so far makes their position very weak.

Musonda’s suitors are reportedly willing to pay his 10 million pound asking price.
