Charly Musonda joins Real Betis on loan

Charles Musonda junior has moved to Real Betis on loan from Chelsea to get first team play and experience.
The talented Belgian midfielder was linked with a move to Manchester United earlier this season.
Musonda was frustrated with the lack of first-team opportunities at Stamford Bridge and was ready to leave permanently after Chelsea failed to provide him with chances.
The Belgian signed a new deal at Stamford Bridge after promises of first team opportunities, but the Blues failed to deliver on those promises.
Musonda is a highly talented attacking midfielder who is highly rated within the game. The Belgian is as talented as the likes of Hazard and De Bruyne and could develop into a world class player in future.
The U21 Belgian international was being courted by both Manchester clubs.
However, Chelsea are desperate to hold on to their prized asset and have therefore decided to loan him out to Betis where he can continue his development with regular first-team football.
Musonda was an integral part of the Chelsea side that won the Under-21 Premier League, UEFA Youth League and FA Youth Cup (twice). The talented midfielder has also represented Belgium from Under-17 through to Under-21 levels.
Musonda has signed until the end of the season with the option of a one-year extension.
The promising youngster, 19, is a speedy attacker who likes to take on players and has an eye for a pass in the final third. Highly rated by Chelsea, Musonda is seen as a future key player at Stamford Bridge and the club are keen for him to gain experience.
The talented Musonda is the son to former Zambian international Charles Musonda who was one of the best midfielders on the African continent.
Charly has Belgian citizenship and has featured for Belgium at international level from the under 17 to under 21 teams.
He can switch to Zambia since he is yet to feature for the Belgium senior national team but the Kalusha Bwalya led Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) does not seem to be interested.
