Bayern disrespecting Chelsea over Hudson-Odoi pursuit - Sarri

"I think it's not professional, because they are talking about a player under contract at Chelsea, so they didn't respect our club, I think", Sarri was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. As I said before, the club knows very well my opinion.

If Hudson-Odoi was to move to a different Premier League club, Chelsea would receive a major payout via an arbitrations panel but the system operates differently when a player moves overseas under the age of 24 and Chelsea would receive a relative pittance under FIFA's guidelines. "The player who plays in that position usually touches about 120, 130 balls [per game], and so I think we need a specialist there".

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic admitted the club's interest in Hudson-Odoi on Wednesday, much to Chelsea's annoyance, with the Blues threatening to report the Germans to Federation Internationale de Football Association if there is any evidence of an illegal approach. 'Hopefully, we will see more of that. He's got unbelievable qualities.

The Spaniard said: 'He is a good player, but he is very young.

"We need to learn to attack the spaces, to attack the box with other players".

Chelsea are unhappy with the manner of Bayern's pursuit of Hudson-Odoi. Bayern's latest bid for the player was €35million having had two previous offers rejected. "You are better off getting your chance and if you get that chance then you have to take it", he said. It is also felt that Sarri has also been forced into playing with Hudson-Odoi by a combination of injuries and the growing pressure of Bayern's interest.

The French news outlet claims that the Premier League giants are ready to hijack Barcelona's move for Rabiot, who will leave PSG after falling out with coach Thomas Tuchel.

Bayern Munich has looked to pounce, as Goal understands the reigning Bundesliga champions have tabled four bids for Hudson-Odoi, the latest worth £35 million ($45m) for the 18-year-old winger.

Hudson-Odoi is available to face Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday, but Sarri said he would monitor the 18-year-old's condition after noticing fatigue this week.
