Arsenal and Manchester United are set to battle for the signature Chelsea’s 19 year old sensation; Charly Musonda. The young Belgian has featured for the Blues U21 and has scored 12 goals already this season. Musonda is thought to be growing increasingly concerned over his lack of first team opportunities in the Chelsea line up and he is looking to leave Stamford Bridge.
Premier League duos of Arsenal, Manchester City are interested in getting the youngster amongst their pay roll, French Champion, Paris St. German are also said to be interested in Musonda but it is Manchester United that is leading the race for the young Belgian’s signature as they are already rumored to be preparing an audacious bid in the region of £10.6M to lure the player to the Theatre of dreams.
If Musonda eventually decides to make a switch to United, he would be booed by the fact that he is going to be playing under a Coach famed for giving youngsters the opportunity to excel. Players like Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta, Thomas Muller, Victor Valdes etc. all got their opportunities to excel through Louis Van Gaal and in the current Manchester United squad, players like Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard etc are coming through the youth ranks into the first team.
