Bayern Munich has succumbed to Chelsea demands and has lodged a €35 million bid with the Blues yet to respond to the bid and are hoping for Callum Hudson-Odoi stay.
Hudson-Odoi, the 18-year-old English winger, has only featured in the cup games and has made only one Premier League match this season at Watford where he came on for Pedro.
In four appearances in the Europa League he has one goal and a return to the squad after the injury Hudson-Odoi layed ou two assists for Alvaro Morata last weekend as Chelsea knocked Nottingham Forest out the FA Cup in a 2-0 win.
With Bayern Munich are facing a big problem in the summer with Arjen Robben set to leave and Franck Ribery not offered a contract, the Bavarians are looking for a long term plans with the Jadon Sancho effect at work with 18 months left on his contract and looking to snap the winger.
Sarri recently offered the youngster more playing time after his FA Cup performance.
“To stay here is better for him,” Sarri said. “He is very young but he is improving, especially in the defensive phase. I don’t know the situation with the club but for me he is an important player.”
“We have very important players in the same position,” Sarri said. “Sometimes he will be on the bench — as Willian, as Pedro — but now I can start to consider him at the same level.”
