The BBC says Chelsea has renewed talks with Callum Hudson-Odoi in the hopes that the winger will stay at Stamford Bridge.
Hudson-Odoi, 18, has been the subject of three bids from Bayern Munich, the latest nearing $50 million.

He has 18 months left on his contract at Stamford Bridge, and the club is reportedly offering him a big raise.
But he wants to play, and that is going to be a bigger challenge (at least immediately). Hudson-Odoi turned 18 in November, and has played just 575 first team minutes. Many of those came since late November.
Chelsea has just invested more than $73 million in Christian Pulisic, but Eden Hazard is 28, Pedro is 31, and Willian is 30. There will be chances for a players to prove themselves in the very near future, especially with so many of the club’s loan players doing anything but lighting their respective leagues on fire.
