Charly Musonda jr. was one of the best Blues youngsters in the past season, being one of the most important players in the victories of the Youth Cup and the Youth League.

In the past days his name was used in the negotiations over Radamel Falcao: many experts think the very talented boy will be included in the deal, with a loan move to Monaco.

His dad, Charly Sr. – a former Zambian international who played for Anderlecht in the 80s and 90s- spoke to to Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad on his son situation, revealing he hopes he will stay at Chelsea during next season, and everything will be decided after a meeting with Chelsea boss, José Mourinho:

There’s no price on youth. I therefore think that Junior needs to play football next season with the A-team. Here in England he has made ​​a lot of progress, but he must continue to develop. Technically Charly Junior has always been good, but physically and mentally, he needs to make some important steps.

“He became stronger and now realises even more that football is played from the brain.

It is true that Monaco already in January tugged at his sleeve. We’ll see, because there are interested teams. Of course it’s Charly’s great ambition to breakthrough at Chelsea. We have to have an in-depth meeting with Mourinho.”
