Callum Hudson-Odoi to sign mega Chelsea deal after Eden Hazard joins Real Madrid – Standard

Callum Hudson-Odoi & Chelsea

Remember when Bayern Munich tried to sign Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi in January?

Back then many assumed that Bayern would land the English teenager, as he was struggling for minutes at Stamford Bridge.

In the end, Chelsea managed to resist Bayern’s advances for Hudson-Odoi, as the winger was slowly introduced into Maurizio Sarri’s XI.

Unfortunately for Hudson-Odoi, his season ended early when he suffered an ACL injury.

The England international is now set for several months on the sidelines.

Hudson-Odoi’s new Chelsea deal lined-up

According to the Evening Standard on Wednesday, Hudson-Odoi is now ready to commit his long-term future to Chelsea:

Callum Hudson-Odoi is ready to hand Chelsea a major boost and sign a new five-year contract to stay at the club.

Standard Sport understands Chelsea have made a major breakthrough in negotiations and the 18-year-old is set to commit his long-term future to the club.

It’s also reported that Hudson-Odoi’s salary could go up to 100,000 pounds a week.

Eden Hazard & Real Madrid

So when will Hudson-Odoi put pen to paper on his new Chelsea deal?

The Evening Standard suggest it’ll only happen after Eden Hazard joins Real Madrid:

It is believed one of the plans in place is to finalise things soon after Eden’s Hazard’s expected move to Real Madrid is completed, so that it will give the fans some positive news after the bitter disappointment of seeing the much loved Belgian depart.

One of the reasons for waiting until the Hazard deal is completed, is that Hudson-Odoi may inherit the Chelsea #10 shirt.
