It all comes back to over rewarding our young players financially again because if you're say Tammy Abraham and you're getting phenomenal sums of money to be a Chelsea player and head out on loan then in many ways that works for everyone.

The England Under-19 global has played eight times for Chelsea's first team this season, but has featured in just 42 minutes of the club's 2018-19 Premier League campaign, which has led to frustration on his part. I am very happy with the player, he is improving a lot'.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (back) is out and Morata (hamstring) is doubtful when the Blues face Newcastle, with Sarri hinting Hudson-Odoi and Andreas Christensen would drop to the substitutes' bench.

Marcos Alonso also believes Hudson-Odoi should reject Bayern and become a "great player" at Stamford Bridge. "I just told him to do whatever is best for him and whatever makes him feel comfortable".

'I think it is not professional, ' he said.

Bayern's sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, on Wednesday said the 18-year-old had the qualities his side wanted.

Sarri took the decision to bench Hudson-Odoi during the game, although introduced him for the nine minutes and it quickly sparked a reaction from Chelsea fans.

"We are very happy with the player because he is improving". Let's see what happens.

The Spaniard said: 'He is a good player, but he is very young.

In addition, Goal can confirm the Blues will report Bayern to Federation Internationale de Football Association if they find evidence the Bundesliga champions made an illegal approach to Hudson-Odoi.

And although Hudson-Odoi did seem like an appealing long-term replacement for either of those two world-class wingers, the Bavarians will have more than one reason to cut the deal off due to Chelsea's audacious demands.

A report in England earlier this week suggested that Chelsea FC would ask for an offer of around £35m for the teenager from the German champions.

However, Sarri has urged him to stay and fight for his place and moved to condemn Bayern's public pursuit of Chelsea's academy graduate.

"If the Blues manage to hold onto the 18-year-old in January, it still looks as if he'll be a Bayern player in the summer with a move to Allianz Arena available at just 4/11".
