According to AS, Chelsea’s Charly Musonda wants to join Real Betis on loan this summer.
The Spanish report claims the Blues wants the midfielder to join Roma in a bid to help them secure a deal for Radja Nainggolan, while Borussia Dortmund have also put a loan offer on the table.
However, Musonda wants to re-join Betis after spending the past six months on loan with the Spanish club.
The 19-year-old midfielder joined Chelsea from Anderlecht in the summer of 2012 following rave reviews for his performances in the Belgium club’s youth academy.
Musonda is an exciting attacking midfielder in what is becoming a golden generation for Belgium football, following in the foot-steps of Eden Hazard by joining the West London club.
Lacking match experience, the Belgium U21 international moved on loan to Betis last January and made an immediate impact at the club, making 14 appearances and helping them preserve their La Liga status.
With plenty of options in regards to another loan spell for this coming season, AS claim Musonda’s heart is set on a return to Betis where he knows he will be afforded plenty of first-team opportunities.
Chelsea are said to want him to go to Roma, yet the Blues could benefit more in the long run from Musonda continuing his progression in Spain similar to current number one Thibaut Courtois.
