Thomas Tuchel backs Callum Hudson-Odoi to stay at Chelsea despite continued interest from Bayern Munich

Callum Hudson-Odoi will not be leaving stamford bridge this summer, which could end rumours suggesting the Blues could swap the youngster for Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman.

Bayern Munich have made clear their admiration for Hudson-Odoi in recent years, with their original pursuit leading to the England international penning a new £120,000-per-week contract at Stamford Bridge.

Bayern have reignited their interest in the 20-year-old this summer, leading to rumours the Blues could look to thrash out a swap deal which would see Coman head to west London.

However, according to The Sun, Hudson-Odoi has no intention of leaving Chelsea, meaning their interest in Coman has subsequently been brought to an end.

Despite Hudson-Odoi evidently hoping to work his way into Thomas Tuchel’s thinking, rumours of his possible departure came as no surprise given the youngster’s inability to cement his place in the starting XI.

Given his lack of first-team action towards the end of the 2020/21 campaign his mooted exit made perfect sense, but The Athletic report that Tuchel is desperate to give Hudson-Odoi another chance to prove his worth.

Despite clearly recognising the evident potential of Hudson-Odoi, Tuchel’s wealth of options in the wide areas means the England international is going to have his work cut out if he is to make an impression on the first team.

Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic all spent time on the wing for Chelsea last season, though Tuchel is clearly keen to afford Hudson-Odoi one last chance to make his mark at Stamford Bridge.
