Charles Musonda Junior , the third son of the former Zambian international, Charles Musonda s the most wanted teenager in Europe. The likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Barcelona are all tracking the brilliant 14-year-old Belgian boy.
Charly is the youngest, and most gifted, of the three Musonda boys who are all signed by Belgian club Anderlecht.
But now Manchester City, the richest club in the world, have entered the frame.
And the Musonda family are considering an offer estimated to be worth £900,000-a-year to move to Manchester.
Under European football laws, clubs cannot buy a boy under the age of 16.
But if the family move to a new city in Europe and want their son to join a club in the specific area, nobody can stop them.
Charly Musonda, the boy’s father and a former footballer, said: “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.”
City now lead the chase to sign Charly junior and his brothers Lamisha (18) and Tika (16).
The £900,000-a-year offer is thought to be double the deal tabled by Barcelona and Real Madrid. Their father explained why City want all three boys.
He said: “Lamisha is small, but he has great moves and pace.
“Tika is a lot bigger than his brothers. He plays at the back and has a great pass.
“But Charly Jr. is a lovely mixture of technique and cleverness.”
Jan Boskamp, the former Stoke and Anderlecht boss, has seen the youngster in action.
He 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.”/Mirror/UKZAMBIANS
