Bayern Munich have increased their offer for Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi to £35m, with the 18-year-old having reiterated his desire to leave Stamford Bridge this month.
Napoli and Inter are willing to wait until June before entering the market for Barella, so it would take a persuasive offer from Chelsea to change his mind and lure him to the Premier League during the January window.
The manager said, "Hudson-Odoi in the last week has been very normal".
The teenager, who has one goal and three assists in his last four senior starts, is wanted by Bayern Munich who are prepared to shell out £35million on the player as they look to revamp their midfield which will soon lose Arjen Robben.

S&P Global Ratings said it had lowered its average oil price forecasts for 2019 by $10 per barrel to $55 for Brent and $50 per barrel for WTI.
Bayern's latest bid was just over $38 million plus add-ons. He has a very great future here in England, with the national team and Chelsea.
"I saw him every day in training and he was really very normal".
"I don't want to speak about players of other teams, of course", Sarri told reporters ahead of Tuesday's Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Tottenham. He is very young but now he is improving especially in the defensive phase.
"If I was his agent, I'd be sitting down with him and saying be patient, stay at Chelsea".
Sky Germany say Chelsea are pleading with the Bavarians to allow Hudson-Odoi to remain in London until the summer in a deal similar to the one they recently agreed with Borussia Dortmund for Christian Pulisic. "Secondly, because I do not want players on the pitch who are at risk of substitution like Willian, Pedro or Olivier Giroud so I prefer to play with young players". "Some times he will be on the bench but I think I can start to consider him on the same level as Willian and Pedro".
