Leipzig have major advantage in Hudson-Odoi pursuit

Leipzig have major advantage in Hudson-Odoi pursuit RB Leipzig’s willingness to include a buy-back clause is giving them a major advantage over Bayern in the race to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi. Sky Sports reporter Aidan Magee, as cited on the Express, claims that both Bayern and Leipzig are battling it out to sign the player. “Callum Hudson-Odoi is attracting interest from RB Leipzig and Juventus as well as Bayern Munich. The player’s first choice remains Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, however Chelsea are insisting on a buy-back clause for the 18-year-old.” “RB Leipzig would be happy with this arrangement but Bayern are not willing to include one after seeing multiple bids turned down this week.” However, Chelsea are insisting that a buy-back clause is put into any deal that takes the winger to Germany. Following the transfer mistakes of Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Brune in recent years, it has become common practice for Chelsea to include buy-back agreements into deals when players leave the club. Chelsea have previously done the same with the likes of Thorgan Hazard, Nathaniel Chalobah and Nathan Ake among others. With concerns over the amount of playing time available at Stamford Bridge, Hudson-Odoi is already being linked with big-money moves, despite not yet breaking through at the club. Bayern have already reportedly had an offer rejected for the winger, with Chelsea demanding around £40 million.

So far, Bayern have not broken any Fifa rules with Salihamidzic’s comments, but Chelsea sources have confirmed the club will consider reporting Bayern to Fifa if there is any evidence of an approach to Hudson - Odoi or his representatives.

Maurizio Sarri believes Bayern Munich have not acted in a professional manner during their open pursuit of Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The 18-year-old attacker has attracted interest from the German champions this month, with Bayern said to have been alerted to the situation by his apparent unwillingness to sign a new contract.

Bayern are reported to have tabled three bids for the prospect, who is apparently eager to leave the club in search of greater first-team exposure having appeared just once in the Premier League this term.

Hasan Salihamidzic, Bayern's sporting director, confirmed the club "absolutely want to sign" Hudson-Odoi on Wednesday, angering Chelsea.

Bayern Munich move wouldn't be good for Hudson-Odoi, claims Sarri Callum Hudson-Odoi is reportedly interesting Bayern Munich, but Maurizio Sarri does not think a move to Germany would be good for him.

Chelsea have been angered by the public nature of Bayern 's pursuit , with sporting Chelsea remain desperate to keep Hudson - Odoi , and head coach Maurizio Sarri 's surprise decision Hudson - Odoi 's contract expires in June 2020 and, as long as he remains unwilling to discuss an extension, Chelsea

And Sarri believes Bayern have crossed a line with Salihamidzic's public declaration of interest.

"I think it's not professional, because they are talking about a player under contract at Chelsea, so they didn't respect our club, I think," Sarri told reporters.

"Then I don't know what more to say, I don't know the situation [with any potential transfer]. I am very happy with the player, because he's improving a lot, I think, in the defensive phase.

"Now he must improve in movements without the ball, but he's working very well at the moment. I'm very happy with the player and I'd like to have him in the future."

Transfer speculation has swirled around Chelsea in the last couple of weeks, with Hudson-Odoi, Cesc Fabregas, Alvaro Morata and Willian all linked with moves away from the club, while Gonzalo Higuain, Nicolo Barella, Leandro Paredes, Andre Silva and others have been suggested as potential targets.

While some fans might enjoy the excitement posed by such uncertainty and speculation, Sarri is finding it all rather frustrating, baffled by a month-long transfer window in the middle of the season.

"It's crazy to have a market of 30 days in this moment of the season, because we play every three days, so we need rest," Sarri added.

"It's crazy. I think the January market window would be better for one week or 10 days, no more."

Hudson-Odoi ready to reject Chelsea contract.
Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is ready to reject a new contract at Stamford Bridge in order to secure a move to Bayern Munich. According to The Daily Mail, via The BBC, Hudson-Odoi is set to turn down Chelsea’s offer of £85k-per-week as he eyes a switch to Germany. The report claims that Bayern Munich are keen to bring Hudson-Odoi to the club this month and have had several offers for the winger rejected by Chelsea. Hudson-Odoi came off the
