Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has denied he is in love with Chelsea forward Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Salihamidzic was responding to club CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge who detailed the sporting director’s interest in the player.
‘The only one Hasan would have liked to buy was this player from Chelsea,’ Rummenigge told reporters.

‘I have to say that he nearly fell in love with this player and his qualities. All the other things were rumours.
‘We don’t have any demand on these positions for the second half of the season. This is a topic for the future. We’ll handle it in the next months and will decide.’
However, Salihamidzic insisted he is not falling in love with Hudson-Odoi and there is only person who he loves.
‘You know the only one I’m in love with is my wife,’ he told Goal.
‘But I am very, very convinced of the qualities this player has. He has a finesse which we need to play good, successful and sometimes even spectacular football.’
Hudson-Odoi was consistently linked with a move to the Allianz Arena in the January transfer window but a deal was not struck between the two clubs.
