Maurizio Sarri has accused Bayern Munich of disrespecting Chelsea by publicly expressing their interest in signing winger Callum Hudson-Odoi. "My opinion is important for the club, but I can not tell you my opinion".
"I think that it's not professional because they are talking about a player under contract at Chelsea", he said.
"Then I don't know what to say I don't know the situation".
Speaking ahead of Saturday's Premier League match with Newcastle, Sarri added: "As you know very well I am not involved in the market".
"Now he needs to improve in some movements without the ball but he is working very well at the moment so I am very happy with the player and would like to have him in the future". "He is really very important for us and it is impossible to lose him in January".
Hudson-Odoi has 18 months left on his contract with Chelsea and is understood to want to leave the club this month. 'Hopefully, we will see more of that.
"In my opinion, he's a player who would fit in well at our club". Let's see what happens.
"He is one of the best (young players) in Europe".
The full-back appears to be getting better every week at the King Power Stadium and Chelsea have enjoyed transfer dealings with Leicester in the past, with N'Golo Kante proof of that.
Bookmakers believe there is a real chance that both William and Hudson-Odoi could leave.
But, having helped England win the Under-17 World Cup, Hudson-Odoi could follow the same path taken by his global teammate Jadon Sancho, who has impressed for Borussia Dortmund since leaving Manchester City for Germany.
I always say if you're good enough, the money comes.
Willian is 2/1 with Ladbrokes to make the move to Barcelona.
It seems the paid could now be reunited at Stamford Bridge this month, if Marca's report is accurate, and Higuain would become Chelsea's second major signing of the winter window after a deal was agreed to sign Christian Pulisic - who'll arrive in the summer.
