Bayern slammed for Chelsea approach

12th January 2019, 10:53 by Nick Harris

Bayern Munich have been rebuked by Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri for their public pursuit of Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The 18-year-old winger, whose contract expires in June 2020, has been linked with a big-money move to the Bundesliga giants.

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic admitted the club's interest in Hudson-Odoi on Wednesday, much to Chelsea's annoyance, with the Blues threatening to report the Germans to FIFA if there is any evidence of an illegal approach.

Sarri said: "I think that it's not professional, because they are talking about a player under contract with Chelsea. They didn't respect our club."

Chelsea play Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday with their transfer business - both incomings and outgoings - making plenty of news.

Sarri, who celebrated his 60th birthday on Thursday, is not a fan of the winter transfer window.

"It's crazy to have a market window of 30 days at this moment of the season," he said.

"We play every three days, so we need something else. The market window in January would be better for one week, 10 days. No more."
