Chelsea's Sarri backs Fabregas move to Monaco but wants replacement


Bayern Munich have had two bids rejected by Chelsea, who are desperate to keep the England Under-19 winger, who created two goals for Álvaro Morata on his second start of the season in...

Callum Hudson-Odoi has no plans to sign a new Chelsea contract and Bayern Munich are awaiting a response to their fourth bid for the winger, believed to be £35 million, a source has told ESPN FC.

Asked about the decision to play Hudson-Odoi with so much pressure on the player, Blues boss Maurizio Sarri said: "He is on the pitch because he played well in the last match and he is doing very well in training".

Hudson-Odoi has been offered a new contract to try and fend off interest from Bayern and started the League Cup semi-final clash with Tottenham at Wembley last night.

Fabregas is expected to join French team Monaco in the coming days, bringing an end to his 4 1/2-year stay at Chelsea and likely his time in English soccer after a previous eight-year stint at Arsenal. I am really very happy with him.

LeBron James out at least 1 more week with groin injury
Since then, wins have been few and far between as the Lakers haven't been able to adapt to life without their biggest star. All of these things have contributed to the Lakers' recent downturn, though the loss of James certainly stings the most.

"You know very well the situation".

The Ligue 1 club, now being coached by Fabregas' former Arsenal team mate Thierry Henry, are apparently not willing to pay what Chelsea are asking for a player whose contract ends in June this year. British media have reported the German champion is ready to spend 30 million pounds ($38 million) on Hudson-Odoi.

He's just breaking into the starting 11 at Chelsea and could realistically hold a place for many years to come - but a move to Germany is very tempting to say the least. A very good match with application, very good in the defensive phase, but he has been completely normal.

"We played with a very good level of application, of determination, with the heart, with the soul".
