Chelsea reject offer for Manchester United transfer target & £10m-rated wonderkid

Posted by

Manchester United and Manchester City‘s hopes of signing Chelsea wonderkid Charly Musonda are alive after the Blues rejected a bid from Oud-Heverlee Leuven.

According to the Daily Mail [via the Daily Star], the Belgian side—who currently sit 15th in the Jupiler League table—were keen on acquiring the youngster’s talents on loan during the January transfer window.

However, their interest has been rebuffed, according to the tabloid, although it still appears likely that the 19-year-old—who has expressed his desire to leave to seek first-team football—will move on during the transfer window, perhaps unless Guus Hiddink opts to use the player.

He has no shortage of suitors, with the Mirror noting that both City and United had been alerted to the wonderkid’s frustration in west London and were considering meeting Chelsea’s £10 million price tag.

Similarly, the Telegraph [via the Express] reported that Arsenal were keen on the teenager, while Le 10 Sport note that Musonda has also be monitored by Olympique de Marseille, who are considering a loan move for the starlet.
