Chelsea have already rejected four bids from Bayern Munich for the youngster, with the latest in the region of £35 million.

Hudson-Odoi is understood to be flattered by Bayern Munich’s interest and is keen on making the move to Bayern with the 18-year-old concerned about the amount of game time he would receive at Chelsea.

However, Chelsea have made it clear that they are unwilling to sell Hudson-Odoi, although his contract winds up in the summer of 2020.

In a bid to show their willingness to keep the highly rated teenager, Chelsea are prepared to make Hudson-Odoi one of world football’s best-paid teenagers to keep him at the club.

Bayern’s latest offer worth in the region of £35million is an incredible fee considering Hudson-Odoi has not started a single Premier League game yet.

And now, the Blues have responded and will table a £50,000-a-week basic deal which could rise to £70,000 for the teenager who is yet to make his first Premier League start.

Hudson-Odoi currently earns in the region of £22,000-per-week, and Chelsea have shown their determination to keep the teenager by making such a mouthwatering offer.

Chelsea legend Pat Nevin has warned Hudson-Odoi against making the move to Bayern. According to Nevin, if Hudson-Odoi can’t get into the Chelsea, regular playing time would also be an issue at Bayern.

“You don’t get a special brief because you are born in a certain country and, clearly, he’s not good enough to walk into Bayern’s first team just now because he can’t get into Chelsea’s,” Nevin told the BBC.

“But if you think you’re good enough to get a game at Chelsea next year, it wouldn’t be a bad thing to stay and have a go at that.

“Right now, he might be dithering [about a decision]. He’ll know the answer by next season and that won’t be too late.”
