Man United 2nd favourites to sign Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi – Ladbrokes

Manchester United have emerged as surprise contenders to lure Callum Hudson-Odoi away from Chelsea, according to betting syndicate Ladbrokes.

Chelsea prodigy

The story surrounding the future of gifted starlet Hudson-Odoi was one of the talking points of the January transfer window.

After reportedly becoming frustrated with his lack of first-team opportunities at Chelsea, the teenage winger was heavily-linked with a potential January move away from Stamford Bridge.

Hudson-Odoi’s current deal with the Blues is due to expire in the summer of 2020, with Chelsea desperate to secure the long-term future of the club’s most high-profile youth product.

Bayern links

Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich were the club most persistently-touted as a potential destination for Hudson-Odoi during the winter transfer window, with the Bavarians having seen as many as 4 bids rejected for the explosive teen.

And, despite Maurizio Sarri having handed more regular playing time to Hudson-Odoi over the last couple of months, the Chelsea starlet, who also made his competitive senior debut for England last week, is nevertheless continuing to be linked with a summer transfer.

Man United join the fray

Liverpool have been named as keen admirers of the attacker’s talents over the last couple of weeks, but, as per the aforementioned update courtesy of Ladbrokes this afternoon, another of Chelsea’s Premier League rivals have emerged as a leading contender for Hudson-Odoi’s signature.

The outfit in question are Manchester United.

As per Alex Apati of Ladbrokes:

‘Three European heavyweights look like they’ll be doing battle for Hudson-Odoi’s signature this summer. Bayern have headed the betting for some time now, but we’re not yet ruling out a shock move to Man United.’
