Callum Hudson-Odoi latest

Callum Hudson-Odoi could run-down his Chelsea contract and join Bayern on a free, according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmsh Sheth.

“That is if he says, ‘I’m going to stay at Chelsea, but I’m not going to sign a new contract and, you know what, I’m going to see out the rest of my contract at Chelsea and leave for free with following summer’.

“That is something Chelsea dare not contemplate.”
