CELTIC TARGET Charly Musonda hasn’t stuck around after sitting on the bench for Chelsea’s win over Newcastle earlier today,.
The Belgian midfielder was part of the squad but was an unused substitute on the day.
It was noted by a Belgian journalist on social media that the player had not come out with the rest of the squad for a post-match warm down; sparking rumours he is close to leaving the club this window with Celtic in prime position to take him.

Rodgers has been chasing the Belgian star since the summer and was given hope early on in this window about getting him up to Glasgow. However, Antonio Conte wanted to examine all his options and make his own decisions about his squad before confirming the player could move out.
With the window set to shut on Wednesday night, time is now of the essence to get the deal done and may be the reason why Charly has left the squad this evening.
