Callum Hudson-Odoi will refuse to sign a new deal at Chelsea and is prepared to run down his contract if the club’s hierarchy continue to block his move to Bayern Munich.
Hudson-Odoi, 18, has become increasingly frustrated by a lack of first-team opportunities this season under Maurizio Sarri and thus wants to leave the club in a bid to secure regular football.
Bayern Munich are prepared to pay £35m for the highly-rated winger, but the Blues have resisted their advances to date.
Hudson-Odoi’s current deal at Stamford Bridge runs out in the summer of 2020, but he would be able to sign a pre-contract agreement this time next year.
David Seligman, a sports lawyer at Brandsmiths, told the Mail: “If the player were to leave at the end of his contract then the Profession Football Compensation Committee would not have any jurisdiction to determine compensation.
“This due to Chelsea and only the FIFA’s regulations concerning Training Compensation only coming into play.”
