Charly Musonda’s father admits that his son could join Roma in January from Chelsea on a loan deal until the end of the season.
The 20-year-old winger joined Real Betis on loan last January and his stay in Spain was extended for another season in the summer, but injuries and form meant that he played very little football this term.
Musonda officially returned to Chelsea earlier this week after cutting short his loan stay at Betis and has takers in Italy, with Roma interested in snapping him up on another short term deal until the end of the campaign.
His father has revealed that the winger could end up at Roma this month on loan, but admits that the final decision will be taken by Antonio Conte, who could give him a chance to impress in the second half of the season at Chelsea.
Charly Musonda Sr. told Belgian daily Het Laatste Nieuws: "There are only two options – Charly Jr. stays at Chelsea until the end of the season or he'll join AS Roma on loan.
“Conte will have the final say. Charly gets the chance to prove himself in training.
“A return to Belgium is not an option."
Musonda has been one of the key players for Chelsea’s dominant youth teams over the last few years, but is yet to make his senior debut for the club.
