Charly Musonda : “English Premier League Clubs Wanted To Sign Me”

share on:

Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda has claimed he was targeted by Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United before joining Real Betis on-loan in January.

“Nobody could know what [Jose] Mourinho had in mind for me,” he told Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad.

“It was simple: many English clubs wanted to buy me. Manchester United, City, Arsenal, but a loan was the only option for Chelsea. Only one thing matters to me – playing. Whether I return [to Chelsea] or not.


“There was interest from France, Netherlands. My ex-coach Yannick Ferrera, who I speak to a lot, wanted me at Standard, but I did not want to return to Belgium. And in the end I joined Betis.”

Musonda signed a contract extension with Chelsea in March 2015 and he is currently committed to the club until the summer of 2019.
