Hasan Salihamidzic, the sporting director of Bayern Munich has confirmed the club’s interest in signing Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi. His heaped praise on the winger surely confirm those rumors of interest.
The Bundesliga giant is in real crisis as the club is performing way too low from their usual expectations. And one of the reasons being their prime attackers getting old this buy can actually turn out to be a masterstroke. Bayern Munich reportedly tabled a bid of £35milion and can even stretch in order to lure the winger.
The sporting director said on the training camp in Qatar, ‘If I have something to announce, I’ll do so.
What I can say: we like the player and take a great interest in signing him. We’ll see about the rest.’
And when he was questioned about the high price of the 18 year old, he spontaneously said that the market is inflated now, and there’s nothing to be done on his part to change it. The club will respond according to the market and will no left no stones unturned to complete the deal.
‘We must identify those players which can improve us. Callum has unbelievable qualities in the dribbling, he has the pace and skills. We want to sign him.’ This kind of praises certainly making sure the interest of the club can possibly make this happen.
Callum Hudson-Odoi featured in the 2-0 FA cup win over Nottingham Forest and impressed the crowd with a stunning performance bagging two assist on the night. He also featured in the match against Tottenham in the Carabao cup but unfortunately his side lose to a Harry Kane goal.
However Chelsea, also going through some rough patches as Eden Hazard remains their only shining attacker and selling a prosperous young talent can seriously hamper their season as they are struggling to find a prolific striker.
But the interest of the German club surely can guarantee a mouthwatering transfer war between these elite clubs. After completing the signing of Benjamin Pavard, Bayern are really looking forward to reinforce their attacking options.
