Sarri blasts ‘unprofessional’ Bayern over Hudson-Odoi interest

Maurizio Sarri has accused Bayern Munich of disrespecting Chelsea by publicly expressing their interest in signing winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Macedonian super-agent Fali Ramadani met Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici recently to discuss the possibility of the move for Higuain. "I think at the moment my opinion is important for the club but of course I can not tell you 100% of my opinion".

Higuain's brother is claimed to have held talks with Chelsea to assess the possibility of a deal this month.

"As you know very well I am not in control of the transfer market", Sarri told a press conference today.

And now Robben, who spent three seasons at Chelsea, says Hudson-Odoi should take the leap and play for Bayern.

"Then it depends on the club decision".

Sarri said he was not aware of any approach to Willian, but added: "Of course [I don't want to lose him] because he is really very important. I don't know anything about the market day by day or minute by minute".

But he did admit Chelsea would need to find a replacement if out-of-form Spain striker Morata leaves, with Sevilla and Atletico Madrid reportedly interested in signing him on loan. "But I don't need an important player like Cesc unhappy here".

"At the moment Morata is here, so I think he has to think only to play".

"Because in this moment in Europe there are 300 players involved in the market and they need to think only to the next match otherwise it's impossible to play".

Maurizio Sarri has said he did not watch a single World Cup match this summer because he does not believe there is anything to learn from worldwide football.

On Saturday, Chelsea welcome Newcastle United to Stamford Bridge but the speculation today has been all about the future of Willian who has been linked with a move to Barcelona.
