Cesc Fabregas is convinced Callum Hudson-Odoi has all the qualities needed to reach the very top in a clear message to Chelsea that they should do everything possible to keep him.

The 18-year-old set up both of the Blues goals in their 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup on Saturday, with the match serving as Fabregas farewell game before he joins Monaco.

Hudson-Odoi is the subject of a £30million bid from Bayern Munich, but Fabregas thinks Chelsea have a potential superstar.

Hes has got everything to make it in world football, Fabregas told Chelseas official website after the win over Forest.

I have told him that if he does not really make it at the very top I will be disappointed because he is one of these talents you can see can be fantastic.

He can be world class, so he just needs to keep his feet on the ground, keep working hard.

He is a humble boy, he really loves playing football and hopefully he can really make it very soon.

On any advice he has for Chelseas players, he continued: My little advice is to enjoy it every single second because it goes so fast.

In football you have to be ready every three days, you have to live with criticism, you have to live with everyone saying how good you are — up and downs — and you just think I am young, I have time but time really does fly, so enjoy every single second of it.
