Chelsea boss Sarri hits back at Bayern after Hudson-Odoi comments

He has 18 months left on his current contract.

Bayern Munich veteran Arjen Robben has urged Chelsea whiz Callum Hudson-Odoi to move to Germany.

Speaking at his post-match news conference on Tuesday night, Sarri said: "Chelsea v Tottenham is a very hard match and also for them, so it will not be easy to win at Stamford Bridge but after this performance, if we are able to play on the same level I think that we can do it". I think it is a great opportunity for him to do that'.

Bayern are reluctant to agree to Chelsea's demands, however, and know full well how much Hudson-Odoi's value could explode if he takes the Bundesliga by storm.

Sarri, who celebrated his 60th birthday on Thursday, is not a fan of the winter transfer window.

"It is impossible to arrange a team very well in 30 days". 'Hopefully, we will see more of that.

The Italian said he has recommended Chelsea need to recruit two players, but declined to say their positions.

"Of course if he was to go to another club then we need a replacement", he said.

It appears obvious, though, that the players Sarri wants are a striker and a midfielder.

Kelly is accused of taking advantage of women, having a cult, holding women hostage and other forms of sexual and physical abuse. The Henry County Sheriff's Office said no one by that name has been arrested since the warrant was issued a year ago .

But he did admit Chelsea would need to find a replacement if out-of-form Spain striker Morata leaves, with Sevilla and Atletico Madrid reportedly interested in signing him on loan.

Fulham are among the clubs to have been linked with the Belgian striker. I think that he can do better.

"The rest is up to him and his brother, his agent, who's talking to Leonardo, and I hope that he stays for as long as possible".

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (back) is out and Morata (hamstring) is doubtful when the Blues face Newcastle, with Sarri hinting Hudson-Odoi and Andreas Christensen would drop to the substitutes' bench.

'He has done that recently and he has played, and done very well in the last couple of games.

Hudson-Odoi, who made his first-team debut in the FA Cup in January a year ago, made a second successive start in the Carabao Cup first-leg defeat by Tottenham.

Sarri said: "We need to solve this problem". Now he needs to improve in some movements without the ball, but he is working very well at the moment.

Who do YOU think we need, Blues?
