Chelsea

Bayern still in hunt for Chelsea ace

2nd February 2019, 05:44 by Michael Holland

Bayern Munich will make a fresh approach to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi in the summer and are refusing to give up on the transfer.

The German giants had been chasing the 18-year-old for the best part of a month but failed to do a deal before the transfer window closed as Chelsea refused to sell at any price.

However Bayern will not give up just yet with their CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insisting he is the perfect fit for their club and a fresh attempt will be made at the end of the season.

"I guess [Bayern sporting director] Hasan [Salihamidzic] is a bit like [club president] Uli [Hoeness]," Rummenigge said. "We also had transfers in the past that didn't work at the first attempt but at the second. And that's what we will work on now.

"To lay down a marker costs money. We want the best quality players here at Bayern and Hasan is absolutely convinced of that player."

Chelsea now have work to do to convince the youngster to pledge his future by penning a new deal.

Reports suggest that Hudson-Odoi has set his heart on a move to the Bavarian giants and could reject all offers as he looks to push through a move to the Allianz Arena.
