If rumours making the round is anything to go by, then Chelsea attacking midfielder Charly Musonda could make a return to Stamford Bridge in January, after a successful loan spell at La Liga side Real Betis.
According to report from Spanish paper AS via Daily Star, Musonda has traveled back to Stamford Bridge to have his injury assessed and treated.
The highly rated Belgian is currently struggling with knee injury and as a result, he has only featured eight times for the La Liga team this season.
The 20-year old Belgian is highly rated at Stamford Bridge and the Blues sees him as one of their future stars. Chelsea have rejected numerous bid for the player in recent times including a bid from Premier League arch rival Arsenal.
Speaking concerning the player return to Chelsea, Betis sporting director Miguel Torrecilla expressed his fear that Chelsea may decide to cancel his season loan move by January, in order to retain him as part of their squad.
“I understand, because it is normal a big club wants one of its assets to play.
“He is a [Chelsea] player but we’ll see what happens between now and then, and the end of campaign.”
Musonda joined Chelsea youth team in 2012 from Anderlecht. He made a huge success with the Blues junior team helping them win the UEFA Youth League and FA Youth Cup.
The Belgian also admitted in October that he has not spoken to Blues boss Antonio Conte.
“There’s feedback with people from Chelsea,” he said.
“I’ve never actually been in direct contact with Antonio Conte, but the club are keeping an eye on their players’ performances.
“My dream is to play in the Premier League, I’m going to continue my efforts to reach that objective.”
Should Chelsea attacking midfielders Cesc Fabregas and Oscar exit Stamford Bridge in January having fallen down the pecking order in Antonio Conte starting IX, Musonda could be given a chance to prove himself in the Blues senior team.
