Ahead of Chelsea’s 3-0 FA Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday, report broke out that Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi had submitted a transfer request in a bid to secure move to Bayern Munich.
The 18-year old has just 18 months left on his contract and has refused to sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge, said to be worth £85,000 a week.
Callum Hudson-Odoi scored as Chelsea beat Sheffield Wednesday to progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup and many Chelsea fans fear that could be his last match for the Blues.
Fans at Stamford Bridge urged the youngster to stay during the win over Sheffield Wednesday.
Asked if the FA Cup fourth-round win over Wednesday could be his final game for Chelsea, Hudson-Odoi told the BBC: “I don’t know, I can’t say. I’ll keep working hard and you never know what will happen.”
The 18-year-old winger would also not confirm if he is in talks with Bayern Munich.
“I can’t say,” he said.
Callum Hudson-Odoi was also impressed with his performance against Sheffield Wednesday and was happy to top it off with a goal.
“I thought we did very well. It was a great team performance. We did very well in training and worked really hard,” the 18-year-old added.
“That’s one of my highlights. It was nice to top it off with a goal.”
Speaking before the game against Sheffield Wednesday, Chelsea assistant boss Gianfranco Zola gave his thoughts on Hudson-Odoi’s situation amid reports that he had submitted a transfer request to force a move to Bayern Munich and also revealed why the youngster was selected despite the rumours.
“I believe there is something,” said Zola. “But he’s been training very well to be honest.
“Yesterday in training he was impressive and so he deserves to play. He deserves a chance. We see how it goes.
“We always said that for us he is an important player. The facts are showing that we consider him an important player. He’s playing. He’s been on the bench. There is an interest.
“We see if we can come together on something.”
Will Hudson-Odoi still be a Chelsea player after January? Time will tell.
