'Ridiculous', 'Disgusting' – Chelsea fans left seething as attacker reportedly set to join Celtic on Monday
Chelsea fans are not happy at the news that attacker Charly Musonda is closing in on a move to Scottish giants Celtic.
The BBC have reported on Sunday night that an 18-month loan move to Celtic is close, with the player set for talks in Scotland on Monday.
Musonda has come up through the youth tanks at Chelsea and has already been out on loan once, to Spanish side Real Betis.
The attacker, 21, made 24 appearances at Real Betis, scoring one goal.
Musonda has made seven senior appearances for Chelsea and scored a goal in the EFL Cup in the 5-1 win against Nottingham Forest.
He also made it to the bench on Sunday for Chelsea’s 3-0 FA Cup win against Newcastle, but he didn’t take part in the post-match training and left, seemingly to make his way up to Scotland ahead of his January move.
Chelsea fans have been left seething at the news, with some fans wondering why manager Antonio Conte is moaning about not being able to buy new players while never giving his young players a chance.
Another fan thought that Celtic was the wrong club for him to be going to and asked, if the player is a Premier League standard, why isn’t he going to a Premier League club.
Here is a selection of the best reactions from Chelsea fans ahead of the youngster potentially leaving on a long-term loan.
Absolutely ridiculous and disgusting were going to let Musonda join the equivalent of league 1 in going to Celtic in the Scottish league. Not going to progress up there would be better off playing him instead of now spunking £50m on a new winger in the summer. #CFC #Musonda

Any other club with any sort of sense would never loan Musonda out. A player like him, with the likes of Willian and Pedro on the right wing, would be getting so many chances at any other club. #CFC

Poor decision from a club that has so many players in its loan system that it can’t spot the diamonds in the rough. Not playing Musonda has already cost Chelsea one cup final this season…..

Good point. It's just that Musonda should be getting more first team minutes for Chelsea and this loan is probaby should've happened over a year ago

I don’t understand Charly Musonda’s proposed loan move to Celtic. If the kid is good enough play in the premier league why not find him a team in the premier league ????????
