It has been more than two years since reports of Callum Hudson-Odoi’s links with Bayern Munich first surfaced. The saga continues.

Hudson-Odoi has not been able to etch himself in the ranks of Thomas Tuchel’s Champions League winning team and now the 20-year-old England U21 international is being re-linked to the Bavarian giants, once again.
The Chelsea youth product has appeared to reignite Bayern’s interest, amid reports of Kingsley Coman’s contract negotiations breakdown – similar to the Alaba fiasco.
After having failed to make a successful move for the winger in the last transfer window and the ones before that, the German champions are at it once again.
Last time around, Bulinews reported (via SportBILD) regarding why talks between the two clubs broke down.
Borussia Dortmund are also said to have scouted the youngster for a potential move.
The versatile attacker had been appearing regularly under ex-Chelsea legend Frank Lampard but then he saw his playing time cut short after the mid-season appointment season of Tuchel.
He played 37 times in 2020/21, scoring 5 times and assisting as many across all competitions.
With a transfer market value of €35m, it remains to be seen if Bayern would be interested in shelling out the money for Hudson-Odoi or prefer going for an alternative.
