Real Madrid Join The Race To Sign This Chelsea Whizkid: Can He Solve Zidane’s Problems?

According to Eldesmarque, Real Madrid are keeping an eye on Callum Hudson-Odoi. The Chelsea winger has emerged as the latest target for Los Blancos as they prepare for life without Gareth Bale. The Spanish giants have appeared intent on adding more youthful exuberance to the squad and thus identified Hudson-Odoi as a potential target.

Hudson-Odoi is one of the best young players in England

Hudson-Odoi is regarded as one of the most promising talents not only in the Premier League but also in Europe. Although he has featured in very little professional football at Chelsea, largely due to his lack of game-time under Maurizio Sarri, he has emerged as one of the key players under new manager Frank Lampard.

Indeed, Hudson-Odoi has registered three assists in the Premier League since returning from injury. Even though he hasn’t been a regular in the first three games, it is mainly due to the excellent performances of his competitor, Christian Pulisic.

A left-winger by trade, Hudson-Odoi is a pacy attacker, who is also equipped with quick feet that enables him to drift past defenders at ease. Moreover, he is capable of providing dangerous crosses into the box, which is what makes him an ideal fit for the Premier League.

An ideal replacement for Bale?

Hudson-Odoi’s style of play suggests that he could be an ideal replacement for Bale. Much like the Welshman, the Chelsea star is blessed with pace as well as physicality that enables him to hold onto the ball. Besides, he is also a technically gifted winger, meaning he can easily link-up play in the final third.

Hence, Hudson-Odoi can be considered as a direct replacement for Bale. As iterated earlier, he has immense potential, and at the age of 19, he has time on his side, making him an ideal long-term investment for Los Merengues.

Is Hudson-Odoi a realistic target?

Nothing is unrealistic when Real Madrid comes calling. But one thing is for sure – Chelsea will try their best to keep hold of Callum Hudson-Odoi, having fought tooth and nails to prevent from moving to Bayern Munich in the summer. He could play a vital role for the club in the future, along with Christian Pulisic and it would be a disaster to let him leave.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, they’d likely have to spend an outrageous amount of money to sign Hudson-Odoi. But, it would perhaps be wiser if they can spend that money elsewhere. Someone like Jadon Sancho, for example, could be an excellent choice while Kai Havertz also remains an option.
