According to a report, Chelsea are reportedly set to terminate Charly Musonda’s loan contract Celtic due to the Belgian lack of playing time.
Report from the Daily Mail claim the Premier League giants are not pleased that Musonda has barely featured in Celtic’s team since his arrival at Parkhead in the January transfer window on an 18-month loan.
The report claimed that the Blues were given berbal promises that Celtic’s hierarchy that the 21-year-old attacking midfielder would be given plenty of action.
But the promises hasn’t been met and Chelsea are ready to recall their star man from the loan 12 months early in the forthcoming transfer window.
The striker has registered just eight appearances across all competition for Brendan Rodgers’ team, only three of which have starts.
In Celtic’s last eight Scottish Premiership matches, he has only used the striker 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.
There were report in January from Belgian news outlet HLN that claimed that the attacking midfielder is earning a whooping £40,000-a-week from his deal at Chelsea.
Celtic could lose one or two attacker in the summer, with the futures of Moussa Dembele, Scott Sinclair, Tom Rogic and Patrick Roberts in doubts, but Musonda is clearly not an upgrade if any of the players do leave Celtic.
