Chelsea & Callum Hudson-Odoi
The Evening Standard have put a price on Chelsea’s desire to retain Callum Hudson-Odoi.
The 18-year-old winger is out of contract at the end of next season.
Hudson-Odoi has yet to start a Premier League match at Stamford Bridge.
Almost amazingly, that’s after Hudson-Odoi received his first start for England during the international break.
According to reporter Simon Johnson, Chelsea are willing to pay the teenager more than five million pounds a year:
Chelsea will consider giving Callum Hudson-Odoi a new contract worth £100,000 a week to convince him to stay at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea’s last offer to the player, who has yet to start a Premier League game for the Blues, was rejected in January despite being £85,000 a week.

Is Hudson-Odoi swayed by money?
While there’s no denying that an incredible contract offer for someone so young, will Hudson-Odoi reject it?
That’s still a possibility, as the Evening Standard note:
Hudson-Odoi says the amount of game time he receives is a big part of his decision.
Could that game time arrive in Eden Hazard leaves Chelsea for Real Madrid?
Hazard has been courted to move to the Santiago Bernabeu by former Blues keeper Thibaut Courtois.
Speaking on Spanish radio station Onda Cero, Courtois made the following comments about his Belgium international team mate:
I don’t know if he is going to sign for Real Madrid, nor do I know if the club want him.
For me, he is a great player, but I don’t decide those things.
Each one decides what he does with his life. For me, he is one of the best in the world and as a friend I would like him to be here.
