A contribution piece from Mark Stevens
As I spoke about it last May when all the media indicated that Callum Hudson-Odoi was closer to signing for Bayern Munich than staying at his boyhood club Chelsea, I mentioned that our star academy player would renew a contract extension for five seasons more with the Blues than move to Germany.
Yes, this information came to me in May and just thinking that we are already in September and has not yet happened is totally ridiculous!
Even so, I will ask you to keep faith in me and I will explain why.
The same person who informed me that Callum would renew with Chelsea, informed me yesterday that the young Englishman has already signed his new contract and that the club is simply waiting for the best time to announce it (I hope this week is officially announced).
Many of you may ask “Why am I going to trust you Mark? Or “Until I don´t see him announced by the club, I don’t believe it.” – The truth is that if I were in your place I would do exactly the same thing so I can understand you perfectly. But I can assure you 100% that my source is reliable and in fact, thanks to him I was able to announce some things this summer that have been spot on, as are the following…
Those who know me so far know it, those who do not know me much let me tell you that I do not like gossip and that I would only announce something that I consider to be 100% real.
I hope that with this I have been able to give you more peace of mind with this matter since there is a lot of uncertainty about the future of CHO, but you can rest assured because Hudson-Odoi is blue and he is returning from injury to stay.
