Hudson-Odoi wants to leave Chelsea for Bayern Munich - immediately

Callum Hudson-Odoi wants to leave Chelsea for Bayern Munich immediately, it has been revealed.

The Daily Mail says Hudson-Odoi wants Chelsea to allow him to leave this week in a £35million move to Bayern Munich, insisting that he needs to play in order to develop as a player.

The 18-year-old, who is only now getting his chance under Maurizio Sarri since Bayern demonstrated their interest in him, wants to join the Bundesliga champions as they are in a rebuilding process, with wide players Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery quitting at the end of the season.

Bayern want Hudson-Odoi to be part of their immediate future whereas Chelsea, who have signed wide player Christian Pulisic for £58m, have previously stressed the need for patience.

Chelsea want to keep Hudson-Odoi and have urged him to sign a new deal, as his current contract runs out in 2020.

The Blues have indicated they will offer Hudson-Odoi a five-year deal, but at present specific financial details haven't been discussed because the focus has been on where the player can develop best.
