HELLO FOOTBALL FANS
Callum Hudson-Odoi remains at Chelsea to fight for his future.
And that will kill any chance he’ll move to Bayern Munich as part of a swap deal with compatriot Kingsley Coman, 25.
The Germans have long been admirers of Hudson-Odoi and have even made it public.
This led to the England player being awarded a new Â£ 100,000-a-week contract last year which ties him to Chelsea until 2024.
But although he failed to hold onto a regular starting spot under new boss Thomas Tuchel last season, the 20-year-old Hudson-Odoi is not interested in leaving his childhood club.
Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid are playing hard with Manchester United against England defender Kieran Trippier.
The former Tottenham right-back is wanted by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to provide defensive cover at Old Trafford next season.
United are ready to pay around Â£ 18million for the 30-year-old Burnley ex-man, but Atletico boss Diego Simeone is in no rush to sell.
So the Old Trafford outfit looks like it needs to increase its supply if it is to land the Bury-born player.
The Spanish champions are still waiting to find out what Trippier wants to do.
And he may have to force the issue if he is to reclaim his Premier League dream after two years in La Liga.
And finally, Tottenham are chasing a double blow for Atalanta stars Pierluigi Gollini and Cristian Romero, according to reports.
Former Juventus chief Fabio Paratici was hired as director of football by president Daniel Levy this summer.
And the Italian is expected to use his in-depth knowledge of Serie A to facilitate Spurs recruiting.
According to Football London, Tottenham are in “advanced negotiations” with Atalanta for Romero and Gollini.
Paratici knows the former well, having signed him for Juventus in 2019, before joining Atalanta on a two-year loan one year later.
His temporary club have the option of making the move permanent for Â£ 13.8million this summer, before selling it for a handsome profit.
