Chelsea is ready to explore the possibility of terminating Charly Musonda’s loan contract at Chelsea due to his lack of game time, according to a report.
The Daily Mail claim the Premier League big hitters are angry that Musonda has barely been used by Brendan Rodgers since his arrival at Parkhead in the January transfer window on an 18-month loan.
It is said that Chelsea was given verbal promises by the Hoops chief that the attacking midfielder, 21, would be given plenty of action.
But that has not proved to be the case and the Londoners are ready to recall him from the loan 12 months early in the forthcoming transfer window.
Musonda has made just eight appearances in all competitions for Rodgers’ side, only three of which have been starts.
In the last eight Scottish Premiership fixtures, Rodgers has only used Musonda once and his place in the pecking order was made clear at the weekend when he failed to even make the matchday squad for the 5-0 Scottish Premiership triumph over Rangers.
Belgian news outlet HLN reported in January that the attacking midfielder is earning £40,000-a-week from his deal at Chelsea.
Chelsea & Monaco move for Maurizio Sarri
What seems clear, as the summer break approaches, is that their be a nervous game of managerial musical chairs this off-season.
Arsenal are already in the market for a new manager as Arsene Wenger is off.
Chelsea seem set to see Antonio Conte leave the Bridge, while further afield Napoli’s Maurizio Sarri is also tipped with a move.
Other managers who are constantly in the news right now include Carlo Ancelotti (unemployed), Leonardo Jardim (at Monaco) and Luis Enrique (unemployed).
Looking at the updates in the English and Italian press on Tuesday, Sarri is emerging as a man everyone is chasing.
In Corriere dello Sport, it’s reported that Monaco are trying to woo Sarri to Ligue 1.
At the same time, Napoli are trying to lock the manager down to a new, improved deal until 2021.
CdS note that the ball is in Sarri’s court on where he wants to go next.
