Risk of free transfer
Chelsea FC reportedly do not want to sell young star Callum Hudson-Odoi under any circumstances – even if the Blues were to otherwise face a fee-less transfer. As the London-based “The Times” reports, an early transfer is ruled out, even if the 18-Year-old does not renew his contract. The winger still has a contract at Chelsea FC until the summer of 2020. If this expires he could then leave the club without any transfer fee.
