CHARLY MUSONDA is reportedly set to return to Chelsea after his underwhelming loan stint at Real Betis.
Spanish daily AS claim both clubs are close to reaching an agreement whereby Musonda’s temporary stay in La Liga will be cancelled.
The talented young star is currently in London – and he is not expected to return to Spain.
The 20-year-old midfielder returned to Betis on a season-long loan in the summer after impressing for the Spanish club last term.
However, he has managed just eight appearances and is currently struggling with injury problems.
Musonda is one of 38 players currently out on loan from Chelsea.
The Belgian 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.”
Musonda progressed through Anderlecht’s youth ranks before linking up with Chelsea in 2012.
