Barcelona join Callum Hudson-Odoi race and could link Chelsea rebel with fellow England starlet Marcus Rashford


BARCELONA have joined the race for Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi, according to reports.

The 18-year-old has been deprived of regular football under Maurizio Sarri this season, handing him just eight starts in his 24 appearances.

Barcelona are looking to replace prolific hitman Luis Suarez and freshen up their attacking line

Sport suggest Barcelona are now eyeing Hudson-Odoi, who saw a winter transfer request snubbed off the back of Bayern Munich bidding four times for the teen.

However, Chelsea are set to offer the winger a new deal worth £100,000 a week in a desperate attempt to tie him down.

The youngster has just over a year to run on his reported £22,000-per-week deal, but he rejected the club’s £85,000 offer in January.

Hudson-Odoi, who made his senior England debut against Czech Republic last week and then started against Montenegro three days later, is joined by Marcus Rashford on Barca’s wishlist.

The Spanish champions are reportedly prepared to offer United £100million for versatile forward Rashford.

While United and Chelsea look to have no intention of selling their top talents, Nou Camp chiefs are ready to go all out to test their resolve.

Barca are desperately looking to find a replacement for hitman Luis Suarez, with Rashford thought to be on the wishlist.

Rashford’s current deal at Old Trafford expires in the summer of 2020, and while United are confident in tying him down long-term, it hasn’t been done yet.
