Chelsea's £70,000 Attempt At Keeping Exquisite English Talent From Leaving

Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi has been swayed by Bayern Munich’s interest in him and the Blues are desperately trying to change the 18-year-old’s mind by offering him a £70,000-per-week contract.

Maurizio Sarri has allowed the teenager to make sporadic appearances in the Premier League and starts only in Cup ties. Hudson-Odoi is seemingly not pleased with the game time offered to him and believes has better chances in Germany with the Bundesliga giants.

Both Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben are in the twilight of their playing career with the latter already expected to leave Bayern after this season. The Bavarians have already acquired Kingsley Coman, Serge Gnabry and Alphonso Davies to succeed the aforementioned duo. However, they also believe Hudson-Odoi is a generational talent and have pitched a £35m offer to Chelsea to sign him.

The Blues are trying to keep hold of the English winger even after signing Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund for €64m. Sarri understands that Real Madrid are still firm on their ambitions of signing Eden Hazard next summer which could potentially leave the Blues understaffed in the wide positions.

Hudson-Odoi is also one of the most promising youngsters to graduate from the Chelsea academy and the club would hate to see yet again one of their own talents leave the Stamford Bridge for greener pastures elsewhere.

Hudson-Odoi’s international youth teammates like Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson has found success in Germany while also developing their games thoroughly.
