Sarri accepts Fabregas departure, urges Hudson-Odoi to stay

Hudson-Odoi has refused to discuss a new contract with Chelsea, having been offered a five-year deal last summer.

Hudson-Odoi has indicated that he wants to leave Stamford Bridge amid interest from Bayern Munich, who are keen to sign him.

Chelsea are interested in £45 million ($57.5m)-rated Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella, but Goal understands they face competition from Serie A giants Napoli and Inter. I don't know the situation with the club.

Stephen Warnock told 5Live: "I think what's really interesting about this story, the way it's headed at the moment, is when you listen to Sarri talk about him, he says 'I haven't spoken to the player because it is not my issue'".

"If Cesc goes, of course we will need a replacement".

Chelsea started with Callum Hudson-Odoi for their Carabao Cup semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley tonight - despite the player being the subject of intense transfer speculation.

Ross said the talks are at an "appropriate level" and the US delegation is large because of the number of issues to be addressed. The Chinese navy's Southern Theater Command is tasked with enforcing Beijing's claims to the vast South China Sea.

"I know only that for me he is a very important player".

The winger is expected to feature more often due to the injuries of Pedro, Willian and Loftus-Cheek and the busy festive footballing period, but as far as his transfer is concerned, the Blues should do their level best to keep hold of the precious talent. I saw him every day in training. Pedro? I can play with only two wingers.

Earlier this week, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri urged west London-born Hudson-Odoi, who only turned 18 years of age in November, to stay at Stamford Bridge.

"He is very young, and I think that he has a very great future here in England with the national team and with Chelsea". A very good match with application, very good in the defensive phase, but he has been completely normal.

"If I was his agent, I'd be sitting down with him and saying be patient, stay at Chelsea".
