Bayern disrespecting Chelsea over Hudson-Odoi pursuit - Sarri

'They are talking about a player under contract with Chelsea, so they didn't respect our club I think.

"Of course, if Morata will go to another club we need a replacement", the manager said.

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

Do you think clubs should punished for tapping up players?

Coach Maurizio Sarri is a fan of Willian, and although he thinks he can improve - he says he does not want to lose him.

"I see in him a really good player who would certainly be a good face to join us".

But very few clubs actually do it in the Premier League, perhaps because they don't think they can give them the time they need, so the question I'll be asking the guys is - what needs to change? They are also usually the first to deny any reports falsely linking them with various big name players and are usually very efficient in their ways of signing players for low fees.

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

Youngster Hudson-Odoi, who is heavily linked with a £45m switch to Bayern Munich, could maintain his place as Sarri is doing everything possible to ensure the England global stays at Stamford Bridge beyond this season. He's very good, very talented, fast and good dribbling skills.

But, having helped England win the Under-17 World Cup, Hudson-Odoi could follow the same path taken by his global teammate Jadon Sancho, who has impressed for Borussia Dortmund since leaving Manchester City for Germany.

"It's insane to have a market of 30 days in this moment of the season, because we play every three days, so we need rest", Sarri added.

Bookmakers believe there is a real chance that both William and Hudson-Odoi could leave.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "It's looking increasingly likely Willian will be a Barcelona player come close of play this month".

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.

The 18-year-old has been linked with a move to the Bundesliga champions over the past couple of weeks in one of the surprise transfer stories this month.
