Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda will not be heading out on loan again next season as he looks to break into the first team – at least that’s what his father says.
Musonda Sr has told Belgian publication NAME that his son has received assurances from the Blues that he will be given more game time next season and will not be allowed to leave this summer.
Musonda had been linked with a move back to his native Belgium with Genk but his father dismissed those rumours, explaining that if the midfielder were to go out on loan for the 2017/18 season it would not be to three Belgian league.
“Chelsea have told us that Charly isn’t allowed to leave at the moment,” he revealed.
“He should get a chance in pre-season.”
Musonda, who is currently still recovering from a knee ligament injury, is one of a number of young Chelsea players hoping to see the field more next season as the Blues’ will be further challenged by their return to the Champions League.
And if the reported assurances for Musonda are true then Chelsea fans can look forward to seeing more academy products in Antonio Conte’s second season.
