Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says Callum Hudson-Odoi will still be a transfer target for his outfit in the summer.
Rummenigge has confirmed Bayern Munich still want to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi from Chelsea.
Bayern’s pursuit of the teenager saw the Premier League side reject a series of bids during the January transfer window as sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic failed to complete a deal.
Maurizio Sarri said the Blues board assured him Hudson-Odoi would not be sold in January and criticised Bayern’s approach for the attacker.
But Bayern’s executive board chairman Rummenigge indicated Hudson-Odoi will again be a top target for the Bundesliga champions when the window re-opens.
“I guess Hasan is a bit like [Bayern president] Uli [Hoeness],” Rummenigge told Goal and Spox.
“We also had transfers in the past that didn’t work at the first attempt but at the second. And that’s what we will work on now.
“To lay down a marker costs money. We want the best quality players here at Bayern and Hasan is absolutely convinced of that player.”
