Maurizio Sarri snubbed the World Cup as he rails against VAR

Chelsea are believed to be unhappy with Bayern for talking about their interest in Hudson-Odoi publically, with Maurizio Sarri furious at his press conference on Friday.

"In this moment in Europe there are 300 players involved in the market, they only need to think about the next match or it will be impossible to play".

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri feels his side need to sign new two players during the January transfer market. "I spoke with the club and the club knows very well my opinion", he said.

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

"At the moment Morata is here, so I think he has to think only to play".

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".

Chelsea want to keep Hudson-Odoi but are conscious that he only has 18 months left on his current contract and has threatened not to extend his deal if Bayern's offer is rejected. Anything else, we will see. In my opinion, he's a player we would definitely like to have.

"In my opinion, he's a player who would fit in well at our club". He's very good, very talented, fast and good dribbling skills. "You are better off getting your chance and if you get that chance then you have to take it", he said.

Earlier this week, sources told ESPN FC that Chelsea were prepared to report Bayern to Federation Internationale de Football Association if evidence of an illegal approach to Hudson-Odoi or his representatives was found, having been angered by the club's public pursuit of the academy graduate.

Willian is 2/1 with Ladbrokes to make the move to Barcelona.

But, having helped England win the Under-17 World Cup, Hudson-Odoi could follow the same path taken by his worldwide teammate Jadon Sancho, who has impressed for Borussia Dortmund since leaving Manchester City for Germany.

"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".
