Chelsea young star Callum Hudson-Odoi has agreed a deal in principle to join Bayern Munich, this is according to reports.
Hudson-Odoi has come under the spotlight for his barnstorming display whenever he’s called upon to play. Bayern have noticed the star in the forward and they are interested in signing him.
Although he’s only 18, the forward is reportedly unhappy with the lack of game time at Stamford Bridge with rife suggestions that he is ready to call time on his spell with the Blues.
He has been subjected to two bids of £15m and £20m from Bayern but the Blues have knocked back the offers for him. He currently has 18 months left on his current contract and there is no agreement in place for an extension at the moment.
According to German journalist Raphael Honigstein, Hudson-Odoi has decided to move to Bayern Munich.
“Chelsea will be hoping they will change his mind by turning these bids down now. Unless he gets more game-time, he’s pretty adamant he’s moving,” Honigstein told the Transfer Talk podcast.
“The fact Bayern are making these bids should be taking as a strong sign that the player wants to do this move.
“Bayern would not come back with a second bid if they didn’t feel they already had the agreement with the player to make this happen.
“He definitely wants to go – that much we can say for certain.
“It essentially comes down to his willingness to push this and run down his contract.
“If he continues to stick with that, then of course Bayern could of course do a similar deal that Chelsea themselves have just done with Pulisic.
“They will say ‘you know what, we will buy you next year but tie you up now’. It will be very interesting.”
Hudson-Odoi joined Chelsea when he was seven. The signing of Pulisic may just mean he is not in the plans of Sarri for the future, hence, the decision to move.
