Callum Hudson-Odoi denies Bayern Munich talks in major Chelsea transfer revelation

The German champions placed the England Under-19 international on their wish list earlier this month.

Bayern have had several bids for Hudson-Odoi rejected by the Blues, who have been steadfast in their eagerness to keep the 18-year-old at Stamford Bridge.

On Wednesday morning, Bayern’s sporting director , who they last valued at £35million.

“We want to sign the player,”  told Sport Bild when asked about the club’s pursuit of Hudson-Odoi.

“I am fully convinced of his abilities. We are in talks with Chelsea.”

However, Hudson-Odoi has appeared to deny the former Bayern midfielder’s claim on Instagram.

In a hastily-deleted Instagram story post, Hudson-Odoi wrote: “Don’t always believe what you hear!”

Bayern Munich confirmed their interest in signing Hudson-Odoi – who has made nine first-team appearances this season – earlier this month.

Their admission , who last week said: “I think it’s not professional, because they are talking about a player under contract with Chelsea.

“So they didn’t respect our club.”

One man who wants to see Hudson-Odoi swap London for Munich is former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben, who believes the midfielder can flourish in the Bundesliga the same way Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson have.

“He is one of the best (young players) in Europe,” Robben told beIN Sports.

“You are better off getting your chance and if you get that chance then you have to take it.

“For young players, it’s always the same. First, you have to take the big step to achieve it.

“Become a professional football player at the highest level, get into the first team, get your place.

“Then, second, which can be more important, what’s sometimes missing is that you have to stay there.

“Staying there is often more difficult than actually becoming a footballer in the first place.

“You have to to prove it, game after game, season after season and don’t be happy.

“Don’t just be happy when you achieve something little or small.”

Chelsea return to action on Saturday afternoon when they travel to the Emirates to take on Arsenal.
