Former England manager Glenn Hoddle has told Callum Hudson-Odoi that he may have to leave Chelsea in the summer transfer window.
Hudson-Odoi has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons this season and has constantly been linked with a mega money move away to German Champions Bayern Munich, who reportedly made three offers in the January window to try and tempt the winger away from the club.
He has only made four Premier League appearances this season under Maurizio Sarri, with the Italian preferring to use the Englishman in cup competitions and the Europa League, where he has netted four goals so far this year.
And Hoddle advised the forward to leave Stamford Bridge if he continues to be sidelined.
‘If you’re good enough you’re in. The lad has got talent,’ he said on the BT Sport website.
‘If he’s not going to get consistent football at Chelsea then he’s got to go somewhere else. Now is the time he needs consistency. We’ve got to see whether he can be consistent.
‘We’ve got to see when he has a bad spell, can he come back. These are the learning curves as a youngster you need to go through.’
Meanwhile, Gareth Bale will make a decision on his Real Madrid future at the end of the season, according to the Welshman’s agent Jonathan Barnett.
Bale has been heavily tipped to pack his bags at the end of the season and make a move back to the Premier League, where the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea are all reportedly keen on trying to nail down his services, despite his hefty price tag.
But although Barnett has admitted that Bale is happy at Madrid, he has also admitted that the Welshman will decide his future when the season is up.
Asked on BBC Radio 5 Live if he can see Bale in Madrid next season, Barnett said on the Sky Sports website: “Yeah, why not. He wants to play the rest of his career with Real Madrid.
“If that doesn’t work out, then we’ll talk again. At the moment he’s very happy. He’ll talk with Mr Zidane and take it from there. We’ll see at the end of the season.
“He (Bale) wanted to play one way and Zidane wanted him to play another way. I think that was the cause of it. Over the period of time it just got worse.
“I think if you let Gareth play the way he wants to play and give him a run of games in a row, he can be right up there with anyone. He’s still got a great talent.”
