Hudson-Odoi tells Chelsea he wants Bayern move


Chelsea's preference would be to turn down Bayern's offer and secure Hudson-Odoi to a new contract, but the youngster's representatives have shown no willingness to negotiate with the Blues in recent weeks and there is growing concern that his head has already been turned.

The offer meets Chelsea's valuation of Hudson-Odoi, Sky Sports News understands, and does not include a buy-back clause.

"He is ready for the Premier League", said Maruizio Sarri.

Former Tottenham forward Robbie Keane has advised Callum Hudson-Odoi to leave Chelsea for Bayern Munich for the good of his career. "Now with the midfielders we are in trouble, I think, because I don't know the [injury] situation of Ruben [Loftus-Cheek], if it is serious or not", he said.

Hudson-Odoi looks ever more likely to be leaving Stamford Bridge but will Chelsea regret letting it get to this point? "A very good match".

Fabregas was emotional in appearing to bid farewell after Chelsea's win over Forest at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The Bavarians' commitment to signing the 18-year-old has played a big part in the move.

"To stay here is better for him", Sarri said.

Speaking after Tuesday's first-leg defeat to Tottenham in the EFL Cup semi-finals, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri insisted Hudson-Odoi had not been distracted by the speculation. "In my opinion, he needs to go".

And Salihamidzic has confirmed that the club are keen on signing the winger, telling reporters at Bayern's winter training camp in Doha: "He's a very interesting player that we really want to sign".

"Sarri also described the starlet as having a ".very great future here with the national team and with Chelsea", but added, "I am not in charge of all these questions and I don't want to speak to a player about something that doesn't depend on me".
