French club AS Monaco have reportedly asked Chelsea to include youngsters Mario Pasalic and Charly Musonda in the deal that will see Radamel Falcao join the Blues next season.
According to the Telegraph, the Colombian striker's season-long loan deal to Stamford Bridge is almost complete and will be approved once the two youngsters are allowed to leave on a similar deal to the Ligue 1 club.
Jose Mourinho already dropped a big hint regarding Falcao's imminent arrival, after vowing to bring the striker back to his best following a disappointing loan spell at Manchester United during the previous campaign.
But Monaco, who are willing to let the striker move to west London are keen on bringing Palasic and Musonda to Principality as they plan for next season.
Moreover, Musonda's dad, Charly senior, is keen to see his son move to the French club, as he believes that a year on loan with a top club playing in the Champions League will benefit him.
He believes that the Premier League champions are also willing to let the 18-year-old midfielder depart the club on a temporary basis to continue his development with regular first-team football at a high level.
"Charly must absolutely leave Chelsea and, since January, Monaco have been trying to sign him. Monaco are not alone, but they truly want him," Charly senior said, as quoted by the Telegraph.
"He's not had a specific discussion with Jose Mourinho yet, but he's trained regularly with the first team. He often watches his friend Eden Hazard. He plays an important role for Charly with his advice. My son does not want to copy his style but develop his own."
"Chelsea don't want him to go back to Belgium. They want Charly to play in a good team in a big league. He must play for a first team," the midfielder's father explained.
"He progresses every day, but he must develop further. Technically, he's always been good but he still has much work to do on a physical and mental level. He's paying attention to this aspect of football."
