PL rivals eyeing move for technically gifted Chelsea forward

By | July 29, 2021

Manchester United will reportedly consider making a move for Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi if they fail to lure Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho at Old Trafford.

The 20-times English champions have made signing former Man City forward their top priority once again in the summer after missing out on the Dortmund attacker last year due to his huge price tag.

The Red Devils are believed to have agreed on personal terms with the England international forward, however, they face a huge challenge in persuading Dortmund to lower their price tag.

According to The Express, the 20-times English champions are unwilling to spend more than £70m for their target, so alternative options have already been lined up if a deal with BVB cannot be agreed.

Versatile Chelsea forward Callum Hudson-Odoi is said to be on the English giants’ list of targets, as is their ex- forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona’s winger Ousmane Dembele.

Ronaldo is out of the deal with Juventus next season, which is also the case for Dembele at Barca, whereas Hudson-Odoi still has three years left before his deal expires at Stamford Bridge.

The West London giants are believed to be prepared to cash in on the 20-year-old this summer, but the Red Devils would likely face strong competition from Bayern Munich for his services.
