Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi’s season is over after Chelsea confirmed that the winger would be undergoing surgery on a ruptured Achilles tendon on Tuesday night.
The teenager had to be helped off the pitch by the Chelsea medical staff as he picked up an injury while trying to control a ball during Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Burnley on Monday night at Stamford Bridge.
The youngster tried to carry on after suffering the injury but could be seen limping heavily before being eventually being replaced by Pedro in the 41st minute and was applauded by the Matthew Harding stand as he slowly made his way around the pitch.
The teenager will undergo surgery this week and is expected to be sidelined for around four months, even throwing his participation at the start of next season into doubt.
German giants Bayern Munich are now unsure of making a move for the Chelsea academy product after four separate bids for the youngster in January.
According to The Telegraph Bayern Munich will scrap plans to sign Hudson-Odoi despite having chased him for the best part of a year and even submitted a bid of up to £40m for the youngster.
At the end of the season, Hudson-Odoi will have a year left on his Chelsea contract, but Chelsea have made it clear that the youngster isn’t leaving at any price, and the club is ready to pay him up to £100,000-a-week to remain at the club.
Bayern Munich are expected to finally pull the plug on their long-standing interest in Callum Hudson-Odoi after his latest injury, with Chelsea growing increasingly confident of keeping the teenager.
Hudson-Odoi had forced his way into the Chelsea team in recent games, knocking off Pedro and WIllian from Maurizio Sarri’s first eleven and doing a good job in the games he has played.
