The ongoing saga about Callum Hudson-Odoi is getting messier by the day with Chelsea now said to be preparing to report Bayern Munich to FIFA over breaching transfer rules.
According to Sky Sports, the German champions have made four bids for Hudson-Odoi with their latest said to be worth 40 million for a player with only 42 minutes of Premier League football. The attempts by the Bundesliga giants have turned the head of the 18-year old who now is not interested in signing a new deal at Stamford Bridge. The Sky report says Hudson-Odoi has reiterated his desire to move to Germany for more first-team chances.
ESPN now say the Blues are beginning to suspect foul play in Bayern’s overtures and want to report them to football’s governing body, FIFA. Chelsea are angry about Bayern’s public announcement of their pursuit for the youngster with the Bavarian director Hasan Salihamidzic admitting his side ‘absolutely want to sign’ the Chelsea academy graduate.
Chelsea are monitoring Bayern closely and if any evidence of an illegal approach to the player or his representatives if found, the London club’s chiefs will take action.
