Chelsea not ready to release star player as they reject second offer from UCL giants


It has become obvious that English Premier League outfit Chelsea are not willing to release young lad Callum Hudson-Odoi to German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

Reports according to Sky Sports reveal that a second bid of £20 million from the German outfit for Callum Hudson-Odoi was rejected.

It would be recalled that an earlier bid of £13.5million was submitted but the West London side felt it was too low and had it rejected.

However, the German Bundesliga outfit upgraded their offer for the 18-year-old winger to £20 million and it was yet rejected for same reasons.

The report claims that the West London side will not consider anything less than £40million for the versatile forward having rated him as one of the most impressive youngsters in Europe.

Suggestions are that the Blues have adopted the tactics to discourage suitors into seeking for his signature his signature as they wish for his stay rather than his exit.

Meanwhile, the 2017 Under-17 World Cup winner’s contract at the West London side runs in its final 18 months which means that they risk losing him for free if they fail to sanction his sale before his contract espiers without cashing in on him.
