Charly Musonda is one of 3 Musonda brothers currently on the books at Anderlecht and is the son of ex Zambian international Charly Musonda Sr who played for Anderlecht for 10 years until 1997.
Charly is considered one of the most talented youngsters in belgian football and has already been the subject of interest from all of the top clubs in Europe including Barcelona, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Man United and Man City.
Charly Jr and his father were recently interviewed and said the following:
"My dad is called by top clubs every week," he told Het Nieuwsblad. "Last year, he even had to change his number! Barcelona called and are my favourite team, I watch them every week. But I want to follow my father into the Anderlecht first team."
“We have had invitations to come to Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City.
“So far I have said no to all of them. But the amount of money which has been offered to us is now crazy.
“We have been to look at the set up of Barcelona and at the same time a Real Madrid scout has assured us that my son Charly Jr. would definitely get a place in Madrid.”
Jan Boskamp, the former Stoke and Anderlecht boss, has also seen the youngster in action and said:
“Charly is the best of all young talents, a mix of Xavi and Iniesta.
“There is not a kid at his age who is so brilliant.”
Charly is still very young so may not be close to the first team just yet but it sounds like its only a matter of time before he is breaking into the Anderlecht first team and then making the move on to the biggest stages in European and world football
With belgium already producing young talents such as Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku, and now the emergence of players such as Charly Musonda not far behind them, the future looks very bright for belgian football
