Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi Set to Sign a New £100k-a-week contract to Thwart Bayern Munich’s Transfer Plans

Chelsea are set to keep hold of their academy rising star after months of negotiations and transfer speculations.

Callum Hudson-Odoi is expected to put pen to paper on a five-year deal at Chelsea to end any doubt he is set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer following strong interest from Bayern Munich.

The Blues were close to losing the winger after he handed in a transfer request in January when he had just 18 months on his current contract.

Bayern made multiple attempts to sign Hudson-Odoi including an improved £35 million bid, but Chelsea rejected and are now looking to tie down the teenager with a new contract.

The forward’s stellar performances in the second half of the season have helped convince the club to hold onto the player.
Hudson-Odoi’s representatives has not reopened negotiations regarding a new contract since January, but he is now keen to remain with the Europa League champions.

The new contract could see him pocket as much as £100,000 a week after a drastic increase in his value following impressive performances for Chelsea and having won his first call for England.

The 18-year-old was at times frustrated during the past campaign under manager Maurizio Sarri, who could leave Chelsea for Juventus in the near future.

Hudson-Odoi did not make his first Premier League start for the Blues until after he had made his first cap for England against Czech Republic in March.

However, after making four Premier League starts in a row, he suffered an injury to his Achilles tendon in a 2-2 home draw with Burnley, which ended his season prematurely.

A host of big clubs including Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund had all scouted or discussed a move for Hudson-Odoi, with the latter asking for the youngster to be included in a swap deal for Christian Pulisic before finally accepting a £57m offer to sell the United States international.

As for Bayern, they will now have to scout for high-profile summer signings elsewhere as the youngster prepares to commit his future at Stamford Bridge.

With the departure of Eden Hazard almost certain to happen, the Blues are determined to keep hold of their other wide men. Hudson-Odoi is keen to take his favourite number 10 shirt from the Belgian attacker.
