Bayern Munich Willing to Pay £30m for Chelsea Youngster

3 Min Read

German powerhouse, Bayern Munich, are considering a third bid for Chelsea youngster, Callum Hudson-Odoi after seeing £15m and £20m bids rejected.

A third bid of £30m is now being mooted as Bayern look to revitalize an ageing forward line with nominal wingers, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery at the very end of their careers.

Chelsea have a number of talented youngsters with Tammy Abraham and Ruben Loftus-Cheek all youngsters who are looking for ways into the club.

18-year-old Odoi has just about a year and a half on his contract and he has so far been unwilling to discuss a renewal as he weighs his options of getting into the first team.

Odoi could join the likes of Jaden Sancho and Reese Nelson who have gone to Germany and are doing well with top clubs.

Sarri likes the youngster, but with his side fighting for a top four spot, might find it hard to properly involve the youngster.

He said of the player: “I think that he is a very good player, the potential is there to become a great player, but now he has to improve

“With the ball, he is a very good player. He has to improve his movement without the ball.

“As a winger, he has to improve in the defensive phase, but he has the potential to become a very important player, not only for English football but for European football.

“I think [that he could play more] but it’s not easy. It’s not easy at this level to take the young players from the academy and he’s ready to play – not only here but everywhere in Europe.

“Sometimes there is one, two young players in Barcelona, from the academy, sometimes one, two Real Madrid, zero in Juventus, zero in Paris Saint-Germain.

“It’s not easy, and I think that we are lucky because we have [Ethan] Ampadu, we have [Andreas] Christensen, we have Odoi, so we are lucky. For players in the academy, we are really very lucky, or the academy is very good.

“In Europe there are few players with eight matches at this level [at 18 years old]. Odoi I think in this season played six, seven official matches in Europe, so I think that he has to be lucky. He is not lucky. He is good.”
