Chelsea Youngster Was Bayern's Main Target

The Chelsea youngster was Bayern's main target throughout the winter windowas the German club pushed hard to add the 18-year-old winger.

Hudson-Odoi is seen as one of several players that can help lead Bayern's youth movement as stars like Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben get set to depart the club.

However, Chelsea held firm despite a transfer request, turning down a £35 million ($46m) deal.Bayern remains keen as well, and Rummenigge says they certainly plan on returning this summer.

"I guess Hasan [Salihamidzic] is a bit like Uli [Hoeneß]," Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said "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."
Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says the club will return for Callum Hudson-Odoi this summer as they remain "convinced" of his quality.
