Chelsea star urged to reject Bayern

10th January 2019, 06:04 by Michael Holland

Callum Hudson-Odoi will not find a bigger club than Chelsea even if Bayern Munich are keen, Marcos Alonso has told him.

The exciting teenager is being linked with a £35million move to Bayern after struggling for game time at Stamford Bridge - though he has started the last two cup games, including the Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg defeat at Tottenham.

Although Bayern are regarded as one of the heavyweights of European football, Alonso feels Chelsea can match them if Hudson-Odoi is prepared to be patient and wait for his chance.

"He is a good player, but he is very young," he said. "He needs to have patience and to be hungry and fight for a place in this team.

"That is all he needs to do, he has all the conditions to be a great player, now it is up to him to fight for a place here or try to find more minutes somewhere else.

"Bayern Munich? We are Chelsea, another great team, the Premier League is the most competitive league in the world, I don't know why someone would go to Bayern Munich."
