Musonda’s time at Chelsea
Charly Musonda has been a part of Chelsea since 2012 when he moved from Anderlecht’s youth system to Chelsea’s under-18s.
The Blues are believed to have paid around £2.25m for the winger.
The now 22-year-old made the step up to Chelsea’s first-team in 2017.
However, Musonda has played just seven first-team games for Chelsea across all competitions.
In those games, Musonda has scored one and assisted two.

Musonda on playing for Chelsea again
After struggling to earn a place in the Blue’s senior team, Musonda has had several loans spells while on the books at Stamford Bridge.
Musonda is currently on a two-year loan with Vitesse, which is due to end at the end of the current campaign.
Despite spending much of his Chelsea career out on loan, Musonda is confident he will break back into the Chelsea team.
When speaking to the Independent, the Belgian stated:
“The last year has been the toughest of my life.
“I’ve suffered a lot this year. Sometimes, it can get very lonely. Every morning I woke up with the same thought: to play. It’s only when it’s taken away that you understand how much you love football. I didn’t realise how much I could miss it.
“I know people will doubt me because, after a year-and-a-half, they don’t know if I’m still the same player,” he acknowledges.
“But deep down, I know how good I can be. I want to show the world what I can do and, if I prove I’m still the same Charly Musonda, I’m 100% confident I can break back into the Chelsea team.
“Maybe it’s me being a bit naive or overconfident or just believing I can do it, but that has been my dream since I was 15 years old and that’s never changed. I want to wear the Chelsea shirt one more time.” As quoted by the Independent.
