Bayern Munich are expected to finally pull the plug on their long-standing interest in Callum Hudson-Odoi after his latest injury, with Chelsea growing increasingly confident of keeping the teenager.
Hudson-Odoi was forced off in the first half of the Blues’ 2-2 draw with Burnley on Monday night, and, although the incident initially looked innocuous, it has been confirmed that he ruptured his Achilles.
The teenager will undergo surgery this week and is expected to be sidelined for around four months, even throwing his participation at the start of next season into doubt.
Now The Telegraph report that the injury will likely see Bayern scrap plans to sign Hudson-Odoi despite having chased him for the best part of a year.
The German giants had four bids rejected in January though were looking to reignite their move in the summer, valuing the England international at around £40million.
