Chelsea boss Sarri hits back at Bayern after Hudson-Odoi comments

Chelsea boss Sarri hits back at Bayern after Hudson-Odoi comments

"He is working very well and I'd like to have him in the future".

Sarri declined to comment on his apparent pursuit of the Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuaín, who is on loan at Milan from Juventus, but he did say that if Álvaro Morata departed, with loan moves to Sevilla and Atletico Madrid mooted, Chelsea would have to recruit a striker.

Hasan Salihamidzic, the Bayern sporting director, said earlier this week that Hudson-Odoi was a player they "would definitely like to have" after they made a bid of £35m for the 18-year-old.

"It's not professional, because they are talking about a player under contract with Chelsea", said Sarri. Anything else, we will see.

The only way to really find out if Hudson-Odoi is good enough, which I think he is, is for Sarri to give him a run in the team but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.

Sarri said he was not aware of any approach to Willian, but added: "Of course [I don't want to lose him] because he is really very important. So they didn't respect our club, I think", Sarri told reporters on Friday.

"You have to prove it, game after game, season after season and don't be happy".

Do you think clubs should punished for tapping up players? He's good at dribbling and has pace.

I think there was a period where as fans we just wanted the world's best players in the Premier League but I think that's changed now.

And former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben has encouraged Hudson-Odoi to take the chance and leave.

Robben - who also previously played for Chelsea - has given an interview to beIN Sports saying: "He is one of the best (young players) in Europe".

So Pulisic coming in and Hudson-Odoi leaving is kind of in keeping with what they have always done and it's clearly worked for them. 'He needs to stay there and work hard to get chances to play in the team.

"The Chelsea academy graduate is now just 4/5 to join the German champions during this transfer window, with a stay at Stamford Bridge priced at even-money".
