The door on Callum Hudson-Odoi leaving Chelsea is still open and Bayern Munich have made an attempt to open it.
They just tabled a bid worth £22.5m but also got immediately rejected by the Blues. The winger’s contract is set to run for another 12 months but he is strongly predicted to sign an extension for at least 5 years.
Hudson-Odoi was a subject of strong interests from the Bundesliga champions back in January as well. Bayern had placed three separate bids, their last one rising to almost £40m.
At the time, the 18-year-old expressed an interest to leave but after a lot of cajoling through positive words in the press and a few consecutive starts, Chelsea managed to hold on to him for longer.
An unfortunate Achilles tendon injury robbed him of fully breaking into the senior side but he is widely tipped to be the long-term replacement for Eden Hazard. His injury recovery is going much faster than expected and the teenager could be back as soon as September.
The Bavarians have reignited their interest in Callum Hudson-Odoi after coming up short in their chase for Manchester City’s Leroy Sane. Chelsea have already rejected their advances before. What makes them think they will go for a lower offer?
