Why Chelsea have won in an attempt to keep Hudson-Odoi

Timothy Aiyeku



West London outfit Chelsea seems to have won in their bid to keep England international midfielder Callum Hudon-Odoi ahead of the coming season.

It was earlier feared that Callum Hudon-Odoi will leave the club at the end of the season as he is already being linked away, after insisting that he will not sign a new deal with the club.

German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich were keen on the signature of the star player but a deal did not work out as the West London outfit rejected three different bids that were submitted for Callum Hudon-Odoi.

However, after the 18-year-old impressed with the England senior national team, manager Maurizio Sarri saw reason to hand him more playing time and that seems to be working for the club.

Meanwhile, Callum Hudon-Odoi has now ruptured his Achilles tendon in the 2-2 draw with Burnley at Stamford Bridge and that is suggested to help calm the player to remain.

More so, the Blues team are already considering to offer Callum Hudson-Odoi a new deal that will have him earn about £100,000 weekly wage as a way of keeping faith in his ability despite the injury.

Suggestions are therefore, that the Blues team have won in the race to keep Callum Hudson-Odoi as a result of all of these developments
