Lampard urges Hudson-Odoi to snub Bayern Munich

Chelsea will sell Callum Hudson-Odoi to Bayern Munich unless there is a buy-back clause included in the deal, according to a report.

So overpaying them puts pressure on the club to earn some of it back but also puts the player in a hard position because their expectations are raised at say 18 about what they think they should be earning.

Chelsea play Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday with their transfer business - both incomings an outgoings - making plenty of news. 'Hopefully, we will see more of that.

The Italian said he has recommended Chelsea need to recruit two players, but declined to say their positions.

"He's a very mature lad for his age, he knows what direction he's going in and he's improving all the time".

'Bayern Munich? We are Chelsea, another great team and the Premier League is the most competitive league in the world. In some ways it's insane that the Premier League clubs allow these players to go and will then have to pay a lot more to bring them back but if it's the only way those young English players will get an opportunity then so be it. I spoke with the club and the club knows very well my opinion.

That appears to have been the period in which he lost hope in Sarri's commitment to develop him.

But he did admit Chelsea would need to find a replacement if out-of-form Spain striker Morata leaves, with Sevilla and Atletico Madrid reportedly interested in signing him on loan.


Fulham are among the clubs to have been linked with the Belgian striker.

And Hudson-Odoi appears to have been caught in limbo between the dying days of the Antonio Conte regime and the opening months of Sarri's reign, where establishing himself at new manager at the club and installing fresh tactics were the priority.

If you look at it logically Chelsea's financial plan makes sense, because they can buy a proven player who has more than 100 appearances for Borussia Dortmund for less than £60m and sell a player an unproven one for nearly £40m.

Other strikers have been linked but The Sun say landing Higuain, who is now on a season-long loan at AC Milan from Juventus, is the Blues' priority.

"I am happy with the player because is improving, improving a lot in the defensive phase".

"At the moment, for his mental condition, he's not able to play".

Coach Maurizio Sarri is a fan of Willian, and although he thinks he can improve - he says he does not want to lose him.
