Brendan Rodgers avoided pronouncing Charly Musonda’s name while talking about the player Celtic are trying to get, but indirectly he pretty much confirmed that it’s the Belgium U-21 international that the Scottish champions are after.
It’s been a period of six months. Celtic have been great in trying to make it happen and, if we can close the deal out, it will be a high level of quality
Rodgers told reporters, talking about Celtic’s transfer target.
He is young but is a big talent who has got experience. It’s good money that will be spent on him. The player I’m talking about is of a substantial pedigree and quality
the Celtic manager said. When asked if that player he was talking about is Musonda, all he said was
he’s a very good player.
Signed by Chelsea in 2012, the young Belgian winger didn’t manage to stand out at Stamford Bridge, spent some time on loan at Betis, in Spain, and it looks like Celtic will be his next home, with the Scots paying Chelsea about £5 million.
We have players who can play there but it’s about getting pace and power and also another one that can make the last pass. I felt that was something I wanted to add. We are hopeful we can get that
Rodgers said about the player he wants to join his team, and Musonda is definitely everything the Celtic boss is after.
