Bayern Munich is now convinced that they have signed a deal to complete the signing of their number 1 goal Callum Hudson-Odoi.
The German giants made no secret of their interest in the highly valued Chelsea youth, and believe that the 18-year-old can have the same impact as that of Jadon Sancho at Borussia Dortmund.
Chelsea won a deal, the first stumbling block being Bayern's refusal to accept a buy-back clause in the contract.

The 18-year-old wants to move to the Bundesliga to improve his football career
The side of Maurizio Sarri wanted to keep the English youth star on Stamford Bridge, but did not receive any positive signals from the players' camp and now understands that he wants to go further.
Sarri herself even went so far as to publicly criticize Bayern's "lack of respect" with the way they had done things, while initially it was suggested that Blues Bayern could report to FIFA.
Chelsea will have a first refusal to purchase the player if Bayern chooses to sell at a later date
Bayern is convinced that Hudson-Odoi can make a similar impression as Jadon Sancho
After further contact, however, Bayern feels that the deal is now over the line, after agreeing to a buyback option, where Chelsea first gets the refusal only if they decide to sell Hudson-Odoi at a later date.
If the player is sold to a club other than Chelsea, a & # 39; sell-on & # 39; clause is set to allow the Blues to receive part of the transfer prizes.
An on-going issue for Chelsea was to determine when to let the player leave, with Sarri's side currently bragging an exhausted forward row. In the meantime, a deal can still be concluded between the clubs that change Hudson-Odoi at the end of the season.
There is also no possibility for the blues to bring their deal forward for Christian Pulisic, who will be a member of the club in the summer, but not before.
