I find it slightly irritating that someone who was supposedly so concerned about professional development would sign a new contract for more money at the place he deemed to be inhibiting the growth of his career. 

Of course, we don't actually know for certain that he's signed a new contract. Nor that he was really unhappy at Chelsea, or that he was agitating for a move. All paper talk, just like all other paper talk.

Isn't it precisely paper talk we have been arguing about for the last month or two?

Either that or that you slept for 14 hours 😏

In all seriousness, and if you mean about him featuring 30-35 times next season, that doesn't mean he's decided he wants to stay.  Could equally be positioning by the club for a decent sale price or that we're simply not selling anyone whilst under a transfer ban.

As MT pointed out, there is no facts in this case - it is all spin.  So all we are really doing is returning to a more neutral world where there is a promising player where other clubs might be interested, but Chelsea are offering the kid megabucks and he still has 15 months on his contract.

That about covers it apart from the "might be interested" as BM have actually spoken out on the subject haven't they? 

Man U and Liverpool? That's probably BS as they must know that we wouldn't sell to a rival.

Not sure we can avoid selling to a rival if his contract runs out.  Just as when Solanke went to Liverpool for a pittance (where he was a flop so he was sold for 4 times the price).  

Man U is certainly more about the Solskjaer now buying the players story than CHO.  Liverpool just Soalnke re-hashed - so not much need for imagination or a source for those stories.
Yes BM have said they would be interested in CHO - but such openness is pretty rare when a club is really interested.  I suspect it was only openmindedness, not an outright chase.  After all there is no real evidence of a bid over £17m.

Chelsea to offer Callum Hudson-Odoi new contract after injury ends Bayern Munich's summer interest

Callum Hudson-Odoi limps off injured at Stamford Bridge
 
 

Chelsea will reaffirm their commitment to Callum Hudson-Odoi by making the teenager another new contract offer while he recovers from the ruptured Achilles that has ended his season.

Hudson-Odoi flew to Barcelona to visit a specilaist on Tuesday and will then undergo surgery after confirming that the injury suffered in the draw against Burnley has ended his breakthrough season.

The 18-year-old winger has not given up on being fit for the start of next season, but the injury is likely to end Bayern Munich’s hopes of signing him during the summer.

And Chelsea can capitalise on the situation by showing Hudson-Odoi how highly they value him by offering him a new contract during his recovery.

Hudson-Odoi’s current deal expires at the end of next season and he had previously rejected all offers of an extension and handed in a transfer request in January in a bid to move to Bayern.

But Chelsea turned down the request, insisting Hudson-Odoi would not be sold in January or at the end of the season, despite interest from Bayern and Borussia Dortmund.

 

He has since started four Premier League games, which has resulted in a growing optimism that Hudson-Odoi will opt to stay at the club he joined in 2007.

Hudson-Odoi can expect to earn around £100,000-a-week if he decides to sign a new Chelsea contract and securing his future would be a huge boost to the club.

The Blues expect to lose Eden Hazard to Real Madrid this summer and are still unsure whether or not they will be able to sign any players with a two-window Fifa transfer ban hanging over them.

Hazard’s exit would free up Hudson-Odoi’s favoured position on the left, with incoming winger Christian Pulisic more comfortable on the right.

Other than missing the rest of Chelsea’s season, Hudson-Odoi will also miss the Uefa Nations League finals, having made his England senior debut in last month’s European Championship qualifiers against Czech Republic and Montenegro. England manager Gareth Southgate is also sweating over Harry Kane’s ankle injury.

^Lays out the situation well, though other than flying for treatment to Spain, there is nothing but sensible guesswork in there.

Were Bayern ever all that bothered - we'll never know.

Will CHO get now what Chelsea were offering him 3 months ago to sign?  We'll never know.

But my guess is Bayern were never all that keen, and he will get less, and as it turns out his brother & father's advice has cost him about £40k a week in his next deal.

Yes, whatever deal was being offered by Chelsea in the recent weeks / months. might have just been carefully withdrawn and redrafted. 

That's why when players run down their contracts to get better deals elsewhere, it is not always the best move. It is high risk. Imagine if CHO had done his knee ligaments, or had his leg snapped in two by one of the Burnley thugs?
