Not many 20-year-olds are members of a European elite side’s starting XI. But this Dane currently have a spot all to himself in Borussia Mönchengladbach’s backline. And he did it upon arriving the Bundesliga last season.
Now in his second year of a 2-year loan, the German giants are doing all they can to tie Christensen down for the foreseeable future given how goal-tight he has made their defence.
Barcelona are also very much interested in the Denmark international who always produce consistent quality and matured performances that belie his age. Having scouted him during their clash in the Champions League, it’s understandable why Barcelona would want to fork out £20million for his signature. But how much will the Borussia Mönchengladbach Player Of The Year cost at 25?
Having fended off interests from Manchester United, City, Barcelona and Real Madrid to land the 19-year-old Belgian, Chelsea proved how good they are in beating everybody to the signatures of young talents.
Now in another season-long loan term at the La Liga with Real Betis, Musonda’s growth is poised to continue. The attacking midfielder who also doubles as a winger has played all 7 La Liga games this term and he is slowly establishing himself as a first-team regular with his excellent performances.
The former Anderlecht star sure is one asset who will be worth some big money in few years time.
