Conte Looking To Develop The Bridge Kids

Conte Looking To Develop The Bridge Kids

Simon Johnson has reported in the Evening Standard that Chelsea are about to open contract thalks with Charly Musonda

According to the article the Belgian signed a four-year deal worth £12,000 per week back in 2015. He`s now, midway through that contract. With a host of other clubs following the 20 year old`s progression at Chelsea, the youngster is likely to be offered a significant financial increase.

Musonda has recently been promoted into the first team squad at Chelsea and it is believed Conte has told Musonda he trusts him and is a part of future plans. Following a recent flurry of departures from the Chelsea academy, Conte and the CFC board will be keen to secure Musonda`s future.

Simon Johnson`s article quotes Musonda who had received advice from his fellow countryman Eden Hazard,

'I know I definitely have to put more muscle on (like Eden did). It is a very physical League. English football is very tough. You can have the skill but you need to add the physical part to it. I am still young and will have to continue developing. I'm patient and I have time.'

Musonda certainly looked the part last week, when Chelsea took on Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup. He scored his first senior goal for Chelsea and after the game admitted that he got very emotional.

Antonio Conte certainly seems more open to blooding some of Chelsea`s youngsters than any of his predecessors at Stamford Bridge. Andreas Christensen has already seen plenty of game time, and with four competitions to fight in, more is likely to follow. It`s good to finally see some of the development team at Chelsea get the chance to actually develop. Long may it continue.
