How Chelsea stopped Bayern from signing Hudson-Odoi, why Ronaldo is angry with Ramos and more news


The reigning European and German champions once again failed to bring the 19-year-old England striker to the Allianz Arena this summer.

Chelsea prevented Bayern Munich from signing Callum Hudson-Odoi by trying to insert such clauses in any proposed deal that ended up putting off the Bundesliga champions, per Sport Bild .

Hansi Flick’s side, who have retained a long-term interest in the 19-year-old forward, once again ramped up their pursuit of the Chelsea forward this summer but they eventually failed in their bid to sign the teenager on loan.

Frank Lampard’s side reportedly demanded Bayern’s assurance that Hudson-Odoi would play a  certain number of games during his proposed loan stay at Allianz Arena, barring which they wanted to include a penalty clause in the forward’s deal with Bayern.

The Stamford Bridge outfit also wanted Bayern to agree to pay over £70m for the winger if he made a certain number of appearances at the Allianz Arena in the 2020/21 season. Both these demands put off Bayern who eventually decided to cool their interest in Hudson-Odoi.

Top News 2: Why Cristiano Ronaldo is angry with former teammate Sergio Ramos?

Both the superstars spent nine-years together at Santiago Bernabeu during which they helped Real Madrid win 2 La Liga and 4 Champions League titles.

Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t spoken with Sergio Ramos for over two years after the duo fell out over Luka Modric winning the Ballon d’Or.

MARCA further claims that the Real Madrid captain isn’t the only former teammate of Ronaldo who has distanced himself from the Portuguese, as the entire Madrid dressing room, except Marcelo, has cut their ties with the Juventus forward.

The root of the feud between two of the greatest players in Real Madrid’s history stems from Ronaldo’s bitter reaction to Modric beating him to the Ballon d’Or award in 2018. Ramos was unhappy over the response of his former teammate and ended up distancing him from the 35-year-old.

What is perhaps most surprising about the two players not being at talking terms is that they won 15 trophies during their nine years together at Madrid.

The Manchester United manager is feeling the heat after the Red Devils managed just one victory out of their first three games of the new Premier League season.

Senior Manchester United figures have sounded out Mauricio Pochettino’s camp after the side’s slow start to the 2020/21 Premier League season, reports  .

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have managed to win just one of their opening three games of the new Premier League season, with the Red Devils suffering a 6-1 demolition at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur just before the international break.

But Duncan Castles claim that the Glazer family are currently happy with Solskjaer due to how cheap the Norwegian costs them, as they are aware that Pochettino would cost them significantly more than the current Man United boss.

The journalist also stated on The Transfer Window Podcast that Solskjaer would be allowed to keep his job as long as he can get United Champions League football.
