Callum Hudson-Odoi: Chelsea to offer wonderkid new contract ‘as Achilles injury ends Bayern Munich interest’

Chelsea will reportedly offer Callum Hudson-Odoi a new contract after the teenager was ruled out until next season through injury.

Hudson-Odoi, the teenage winger, ruptured his Achilles during Monday evening’s draw with Burnley, and is now facing months on the sidelines.

Hudson-Odoi had to be helped off the Stamford Bridge pitch on Monday night

It is believed his injury will keep the 18-year-old out until next season, through Hudson-Odoi hopes to be fit before the start of the 2019/20 campaign in August.

The injury deals a real blow to Chelsea as they look to finish in the Premier League top four and also win the Europa League, with manager Maurizio Sarri hoping to book the Blues a place in next season’s Champions League.

Hudson-Odoi has enjoyed a relatively successful breakthrough season, and he recently became one of Sarri’s first-choice wingers after spending the first half of the campaign as a backup option.
