Cape Town - Chelsea starlet Callum Hudson-Odoi is in demand
as reports suggest Manchester United have joined the race to sign the player.
The 18-year-old is hot property as Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund
and Liverpool all chase his signature, but now United can also be added to that
The Blues face a battle to keep hold as the young forward
has just over a year remaining on his current contract, and there is no sign of
him penning a new one as interest mounts.
Hudson-Odoi is unhappy with the amount of opportunities he
has been handed at Stamford Bridge, leading to reports he has no intention of
penning a new contract.
The England international was pushing for a move to Bayern
in the January window, but Chelsea refused to cash in, knocking back bids as
high as £35 million.
United have also joined the race and could see him as a
cheaper alternative to Dortmund star, and fellow England international, Jadon
Sancho, when the transfer window re-opens.
If Chelsea do decide to cash in they will prefer to sell to
a foreign club rather than a Premier League rival, which would put the German
duo in the box seat.
