Maurizio Sarri has pledged to give more game time to Callum Hudson-Odoi throughout the rest of the season and declared that the 18-year-old is good enough to play in the Premier League regularly.

After holding out on signing an improved contract for some time now, Hudson-Odoi recently informed Chelsea he has no intentions of spending his future with them.

The bid is Bayern's fourth offer for the England U19 star, who has so far only made 11 senior appearances in Chelsea's first team. I am really very happy with him.

"But when you're getting wanted by the manager to stay at the club, and the manager at your current club doesn't have a say on the future, I just find it absolutely baffling". You know very well in this club there is a rule: The renewal of players over 30 is usually one year.

On Saturday, Fabregas played what looks to be his lasyt game for Chelsea in the 2-0 win over Notthingham Forest in the FA Cup, and seemingly waved his goodbyes to the crowd when coming off in the 85th minute.

The report indicates that Hudson-Odoi's representatives have already held talks with Juve, though the Wandsworth-born ace would prefer to join the German champions if he is given the choice.

"I am not in charge of these questions and I do not want to speak to a player about something that doesn't depend on me."

"I don't want to speak about players of other teams, of course", Sarri told reporters ahead of Tuesday's Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Tottenham.

"To stay here is better for him", Sarri said. "Sometimes he will be on the bench - as Willian, as Pedro - but now I can start to consider him at the same level". Very good defensive phase, but very good'.
