Chelsea have received a £35m offer from Bayern Munich for winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, according to multiple reports in the English media.
The 18-year-old’s contract at Stamford Bridge expires in 18 months’ time but the teenager is refusing to sign a new deal, reiterating his desire to leave the club for the Bundesliga giants.
So far, the Blues have turned down three bids for Hudson-Odoi and fans on Twitter want them to stand firm in their refusal to sell:

And after about 5-6 years Chelsea will bid £95m For him… I don’t understand Chelsea Board.

I think his head has been turned personally and Bayern are applying a dangerous amount of pressure on an 18 year old. This kid is going to reach phenomenal levels and Chelsea need to do whatever they have to.

It remains to be seen what Chelsea will make of this latest offer from Bayern. The Blues’ reported asking price was £40m, which is close to being matched by this latest proposal.
With the player looking to leave and unwilling to sign a new contract, there is no doubt that the German club are looking to take advantage of the situation and they are willing to pay a premium to get their man this month.
