Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has revealed his advice to Chelsea wonderkid Callum Hudson-Odoi amid links with Bayern Munich.
It looks as though Hudson-Odoi could follow Sancho in leaving English football behind for a move to the Bundesliga, where there are more opportunities for young players.
Sancho has been a big hit at Borussia Dortmund, while Reiss Nelson has also done well on loan from Arsenal at Hoffenheim in the German top flight.

ESPN are among the sources to recently report of Hudson-Odoi being unsure over his future amid interest from Bayern, and Sancho has now commented on the speculation.
The England international says he’s spoken to his fellow countryman about life in the Bundesliga, but ultimately says it’s up to him to do what he feels is best for himself.
‘Everyone has different pathways. Me and Callum are close friends. I know what he’s all about,’ Sancho told the Daily Mail.
‘He’s the next one I would say. He’s very good and talented, fast, good dribbling skills. And I’ve told him the Bundesliga is a nice league. I just told him to do whatever is best for him.’
Chelsea fans will no doubt be concerned about losing another top youngster, having also seen players like Mohamed Salah and Kevin De Bruyne leave Stamford Bridge at a young age before going on to become world class performers at other clubs.
