Chelsea dig in heels over future of Callum Hudson-Odoi

Chelsea are digging in their heels over the future of Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The Sun says Eden Hazard's move to Real Madrid will impact on Hudson-Odoi's dream switch to Bayern Munich.

Cashing in on Hazard could see them keep Hudson-Odoi, 18, despite no breakthrough on extending his contract beyond 2020.

Bayern have targeted the England Under-21 forward as part of the rebuilding process in the aftermath of crashing out of the Champions League to Liverpool this week.

They failed in a £35million move in January but are ready to bid again in the summer - and could break the Premier League record fee for a teenager.

Chelsea have been hit with a two-window transfer ban from Fifa, which could get delayed but still complicates their recruitment.
