The German champions have had a long-standing interest in securing Hudson-Odoi’s signature, but their efforts to land him from Chelsea before the international transfer window slammed shut ended in vain.


Prior to deadline day, Flick openly expressed his club’s admiration for the Blues winger as he waxed lyrical about the player in a press conference.



And according to Munich-based newspaper TZ, Flick’s comments on their top transfer target did not sit well with the Bayern Munich powerbrokers.


The 55-year-old was internally reprimanded by the German champions’ hierarchy.



Bayern Munich’s swoop to land Hudson-Odoi on loan ultimately came undone as the Bundesliga giants failed to come to terms with Chelsea’s demands.


The young Englishman has been struggling to clock regular game time under Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and it was claimed that he was warm to a loan move away to Munich.



The 19-year-old has started the last two games for Chelsea, but will face increased competition for a spot in the starting line-up, with Christian Pulisic back from injury while Hakim Ziyech is getting closer to full fitness.
