Chelsea are demanding Charly Musonda to sign a new contract.
The Belgium Under-21 international, who has just over two years left on his current contract, is on the fringes of Antonio Conte’s first team.
Belgian journalist Sven Claes says Chelsea have warned Musonda to commit himself to the club or leave.
Claes tweeted: “Chelsea have a clear message for Charly Musonda Jr (20): sign a contract extension or move permanent this summer.”
Upon moving to Real Betis on-loan 18 months ago, Musonda revealed: “It was simple: many English clubs wanted to buy me. Man U, City, Arsenal… but only rent was an option for Chelsea.”.
The forward was loaned to Betis at the beginning of the season, where he was playing sporadically, yet a change of manager and a mystery knee injury made life very difficult, leading him to return to Stamford Bridge.
Since his return, Musonda has made three U23 appearances for Chelsea, scoring a goal against Manchester City, but hasn’t even come close to being a part of Antonio Conte’s plans, which has put a big question mark regarding his future.
