Hudson-Odoi tells Chelsea he wants Bayern move

Callum Hudson-Odoi Cesc Fabregas

The Blues boss, speaking ahead of Tuesday's Carabao Cup semi-final first leg with Tottenham, insisted Callum Hudson-Odoi was "ready" for big games and that the 18-year-old's future was at Stamford Bridge.

Bayern will have been particularly interested to see whether or not their transfer target, who only turned 18 two months ago, would sink or swim but there was no hint of the pressure getting to Hudson-Odoi.

Maurizio Sarri named four starlets - Ethan Ampadu, Andreas Christensen, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi, in his starting 11. He is improving, I'm very happy with him.

"I don't think they're going to be the dominant team they were, they've got a lot of older players in the team now". Very good defensive phase, but very good'. "Maybe he does not read anything".

He added: "But I am not in charge of all these questions and I don't want to speak to a player about something that doesn't depend on me". "Of course we have very important players in the same position, so you want Willian on the bench I think?"

Jimmy Butler unhappy with 76ers role
Jimmy Butler's agent reportedly has said all is well between Butler and Sixers coach Brett Brown . Right now the Philadelphia 76ers are 25-14 and hold the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference.

It's been widely speculated that although Bayern Munich have been scouting Hudson-Odoi for some time, their interest in the England Under-19 worldwide largely stems from the success that Jadon Sancho has had at Borussia Dortmund.

Hudson-Odoi will hope to feature for Chelsea when they tackle Newcastle United in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. I think to stay here is better for him. "It is important because if you have five or six players from the academy you can have a soul, more than 25 foreign players", he said.

When asked whether he thinks joining Bayern would be a good move for Hudson-Odoi, Sarri told reproters: "I don't think so, because he's an English player, he's very young".

Should he leave he would follow the likes of Jadon Sancho, who plays for Borussia Dortmund, and Reiss Nelson, who is loan at Hoffenheim from Arsenal, by getting the chance to prove his worth in first-team action in the Bundesliga.
