Callum Hudson-Odoi Has Reportedly Made The Decision To Stay And Fight For His Blues Place Amid Talk Of A Switch To Bayern Munich

The England man has consistently been linked with a move to Bavaria, with the German giants lodging a number of bids for his signature in the summer of 2019, whilst they also renewed their interest last summer too.

Recently, French outlet L’Equipe suggested that a swap deal could be in the offing between Chelsea and Bayern that would see Hudson-Odoi move to the Allianz Arena, with Kingsley Coman being offered to the Blues in exchange.

However, that deal now seems unlikely with the current Chelsea man having made the decision to stay at Stamford Bridge in the hope of forcing his way back into Thomas Tuchel’s plans as first reported by football.london.

According to The Sun, the 20-year-old is not even entertaining the prospect of an exit and has been taking part in Chelsea pre-season training as normal.

Despite having made 18 appearances following the arrival of Thomas Tuchel in January, the winger did not appear to have the full trust of the German.

Hudson-Odoi was restricted to just ten starts in all competitions and did not play a single minute of Chelsea’s victorious Champions League run after a seven-minute cameo against Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge in the last-16.

The winger’s lowest point of the season came during the 1-1 draw with Southampton in February as he was substituted onto the pitch at half-time, only to be withdrawn just over half an hour later.

Tuchel recently challenged Hudson-Odoi to work even harder in order to reach his Chelsea potential.

Talking to the Blues’ official website in May, the German said: “Callum needs to understand how to use his potential.

“He needs to understand how to push himself to the absolute limit, and not be happy with 80, 85, 90, 95 per cent. He simply cannot be happy with that in any single day.

“He needs to learn and understand that and live up to that. Once he does this, he will make his way and leave his footprints.”

Hudson-Odoi still has three years left to run on his current Blues deal.
