Journalist Says Hudson-Odoi Bid Too High

Duncan Castles has said that Callum Hudson-Odoi bid by Bayern Munich is too high.

The German giants have reportedly tabled a bid of £35m for the Chelsea starlet.

Reliable journalist and football expert Duncan Castles has said that Bayern Munich’s bid of £35m for Chelsea starlet Callum Hudson-Odoi. He also claimed that if the bid would have been tabled a few years ago, it would have been laughed at by the fans.

Speaking to The Transfer Window Podcast, Castles said, “The money we’re talking about for Hudson-Odoi is a serious transfer fee for a player of his age and experience.”

He added, “But what it tells you is that there’s been a step-shift in the perception of the quality of English talent, English nationals at top Premier League clubs and also the general players like Brahim Diaz that English clubs have brought in from Spain, for example, or elsewhere in Europe and trained up. If you said five years ago, Bayern Munich were gonna offer over 30 million for an 18-year-old kid from Chelsea’s academy, who had barely played in the first team, you’d have just laughed at the idea.”

The Chelsea Academy Graduate has been in good form of late but has not been able to break into the first team at Stamford Bridge on a regular basis.
