It all comes back to over rewarding our young players financially again because if you're say Tammy Abraham and you're getting phenomenal sums of money to be a Chelsea player and head out on loan then in many ways that works for everyone.

Willian was on Thursday linked with Barcelona, but Sarri ruled out the prospect of the Brazilian departing this month.

Sarri, who wants to keep Hudson-Odoi in London, said Bayern's comments showed a lack of respect to Chelsea.

The 18-year-old believes Hudson-Odoi can be "the next one" off England's current production line of talent, and revealed he has had talks with the Chelsea 18-year-old about life in Germany, amid a £35 million bid from Bayern Munich.

So overpaying them puts pressure on the club to earn some of it back but also puts the player in a hard position because their expectations are raised at say 18 about what they think they should be earning. Anything else, we will see. I think that he can do better.

When asked why he preferred Pedro to Hudson-Odoi, Sarri said: 'Pedro is very important for us, for characteristics.

Meghan will continue in her role as joint-patron for The Royal Foundation, which was set up by Princes William and Harry. Buckingham Palace said that "patronages generally reflect the interests of the member of the Royal Family involved".

On Fabregas, Sarri repeated his belief the midfielder should be allowed to go, adding: "I need a replacement, but I don't need a very important player like Cesc unhappy here". He's good at dribbling and has pace.

Lampard has admired Hudson-Odoi's performances from afar and hopes the England Under-19 global is still a Chelsea player when the January transfer window closes.

'Bayern Munich? We are Chelsea, another great team and the Premier League is the most competitive league in the world.

Talented winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has attracted interest from the Bavarians, who have made their intentions to clear about signing him.

So if you're going to give say Hudson-Odoi a chance, manager and fans have to accept that he might make some mistakes as he's developing but it'll be worth it in the future.

"If the Blues manage to hold onto the 18-year-old in January, it still looks as if he'll be a Bayern player in the summer with a move to Allianz Arena available at just 4/11".
