Where has this been officially announced because I haven't heard anything yet other than paper reports
I hope you all realize what this transfer means (probably not because this a 15 year old... and who follows these young kids ).
But Charly Mussonda Jr. is the most talented -16 of whole Europe. Every international youth tournament he played in, he was chosen the best player.
Mussonda is seen as the biggest talent Belgium has for over 30 years!!! And yes... this statement comes from the same people that said Eden Hazard will be the next big thing when he just turned 15 and started playing at Lille. Mussonda is without doubt and even bigger talent than Hazard.
The deal involves all 3 brothers (Tika & Lamisha) to come over to Chelsea. This was a strict demand by their father Charly Mussonda (former Anderlecht CM himself from 1987-1997). It is certain that we actually only wanted the youngest Mussonda. So I won't expect the older brothers to ever become part of the first team (although you never know).
Interesting trivia: It's has been very close of none of the three Mussonda brothers would ever been born. Their father was called up for a world cup qualifier with the Zambian national squad in the ealry '90 s. Anderlechts Manager asked him to stay in Brussels to play an important game with Anderlecht that weekend. Mussonda stayed in Brussels... the whole Zambian national team died in a plane crash that weekend.
Anderlecht was REALLY planning to keep the youngest Mussonda in Brussels. Offers from Real Madrid, Barcelona, both Milan's clubs were denied. The fact we could sign him has to be seen as very unique and special! The contact with Anderlecht must be good after the story of Lukaku, which is a good thing!
Dunnot underestimate the impact of Lukaku in this story. Both fathers (Mussonda & Lukaku) are closely connected following their sons following their footsteps in belgian football at Anderlecht.
GREAT signing for the club. As an Anderlecht fan I'm very disappointed that our club was not able to keep Europe's biggest young talent in our ranks. But I'm very happy to see him at Chelsea... where I can follow him up closely for the rest of his career!
