Callum Hudson-Odoi Pursued Again by Bayern Munich

As had been expected back in March, Bayern Munich are back in for Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi this summer transfer window. Having failed to land him in previous transfer window(s), the Bavarian giants are returning with a larger bid.

According to the Sunday Mail, they will put forth a new bid worth approximately €50 million, a 25% increase over the €40m they offered for the rights to the 18-year-old on January transfer window deadline day.


This bid will be made in the coming week, the article states, and if you were paying attention on this story, then you knew this was coming. At the best online casino offering transfer market futures, Hudson-Odoi was a name on all the boards. His current situation now presents an interesting quandary for Stamford Bridge. On one hand, they do not want to sell one of their rising young stars, especially when:

-they need all hands on deck to try and replace Eden Hazard and

-the transfer ban prohibits them from signing new players until next summer.

On the other hand, Hudson-Odoi will see his contract expire at the end of  this upcoming season and if he decides to bail at that time, the west London side will get nothing for him in return. And the transfer market is just like sports betting, you got to cash out while you still have market value. Or quit while you’re ahead so to speak. 

It took until almost the end of last season, but Blues boss Maurizio Sarri did finally put CHO into the starting XI and when he did it paid off dividends.

Now with wonder boy Christian Pulisic coming in, Chelsea have a pair of very young, extremely talented wings that could be a part of their attack for many years to come.

Unfortunately, the teenage English international suffered an Achilles tear in mid-April that ended his season early, and will see him through a long rehabilitative process. Right now he’s at the Cobham training ground while the team is currently out on preseason exhibition tour- having left Dublin for Japan.

The Bundesliga super power remains interested in him despite the injury though, which truly speaks to how keen they really are.
