Deal agreed: Risky move from Chelsea as they agree to loan out exciting winger with an obligation to buy

Posted by

Admittedly this isn’t exactly the same as the Serge Gnabry situation, but you can make an argument that Callum Hudson-Odoi has all the tools to make a big impact if Chelsea allow him to go to Bayern Munich.

Hudson-Odoi is clearly out of favour after the summer arrivals at Stamford Bridge, but his introduction did help to inspire the comeback against West Brom and he should still have a place in the setup.

Despite that, reports from Germany have confirmed that Bayern Munich have agreed a deal which will see them loan the winger with an obligation to buy:

That’s as good as a permanent exit from Chelsea’s point of view, and it could come back to bite them if he shines in Germany.

Gnabry will be the obvious example to follow as a talented forward who wasn’t valued by a big London club that eventually went on to shine for Bayern, although he did play for a couple of other teams first.

Signing for the European Champions might be a step up for him and there will be a lot of competition for places, so this could come down to how both sides value him.

If Chelsea only see him as a rotation option that they don’t want to actively push into the team then there’s little reason to stay, while Bayern could promise to make him an impact sub who will get more chances if he does well.

They also signed Leroy Sane this summer but he does have his injury problems, while the overlapping Alphonso Davies will take some of the attention away from Hudson-Odoi on that flank, so this could be a great move for him.

It’s also not out of the question that the German giants could try to turn him into an attacking full back either, so it will be fascinating to follow his progress if this does go through.

  1. Wrong move again by Lampard. Seriously not well thought. Chelsea will regret this move in the near future as they did with KdB, and Sala. Lampard is seriously out of his depth here. Yes ,he is a club legend but, as a manager he is very green.

    1. the same thing will happen with rudiger. lampard’ s choice of players is very questionable. playets such as christensen have been at chelsea for longer periods and nothing special comes out from them . the great Conte noticed that as well. this is the reason why not even one club inquires about christensen. the fact that odoi and rudiger are being pursued by bayern and tottenham under mourinho tells us something about their potentral

  2. I sound it to you all Chelsea fans that lampard is an empty vessel but you guys refuse to understand me,you see how sentiment can destroy good job and lampard is not a coach any day.

  3. I don’t wanna see him there be young this season, for get the fact that we have pulicic, ziech the the rest, we still want some little guns on the stand.

    1. just watch his performances last season and u may agree that he flatters to decieve.he does not score neither does he track opponents. he also does not assist. in the current environment he is a flop. therefore lampard is be right

  4. Stop worrying! Capt America, havertz zyrich going to be deadly. Sit back and watch. Callum is a good young player. But he doesn’t seem to want to fight for his spot. Let’s see how long he is happy at Bayern behind sane and Davies.
