German journalist Raphael Honigstein has revealed that Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi already has an agreement in place with Bayern Munich for January move.
According to reports, Bayern have had two rejected bids of £15m and £20m for Hudson-Odoi, amid 18 months remaining on his Blues contract.

But Honigstein claims the 18-year-old has already made his mind up, although, the Blues are not willing to sell their star.
“Chelsea will be hoping they will change his mind by turning these bids down now. Unless he gets more game-time, he’s pretty adamant he’s moving,” Honigstein told the Transfer Talk podcast.
“The fact Bayern are making these bids should be taking as a strong sign that the player wants to do this move.”
“Bayern would not come back with a second bid if they didn’t feel they already had the agreement with the player to make this happen.”
“He definitely wants to go – that much we can say for certain.”
“It essentially comes down to his willingness to push this and run down his contract.”
“If he continues to stick with that, then, of course, Bayern could, of course, do a similar deal that Chelsea themselves have just done with Pulisic.”
“They will say ‘you know what, we will buy you next year but tie you up now’. It will be very interesting.”
