It doesn’t matter whether Callum Hudson-Odoi decides to stay or go, because Chelsea have already decided to keep him.

That’s what I think. Of course it makes life a lot easier, and improves the whole situation immeasurably, if he turns round tomorrow and signs a five year contract, but whether even if he holds out, we won’t let him go.

It has been reported in recent days that he’s losing his determination to move to Germany to join Bayern Munich.

He may not believe us, but we can offer him games next season if we sell Eden Hazard. He can be a starting player very soon, and if we show that to him over the next 12 months, he will decide to stay.

That’s what I think, and that’s what it appears the club thinks too. They look set to hold out against all bidders (perhaps unless things get really ridiculous). That’s assuming Hazard goes, which then opens up a clear path for Callum to play in the first team.

Maybe this will all work out OK after all? Let’s hope so
