This week’s edition of SportBild explained Kai Havertz ‘will go’ in the upcoming transfer window, and Chelsea or Real Madrid are the clubs likeliest to be his next destination.
Kicker on Thursday have backed up SportBild’s report, as they state the 21-year-old has ‘decided’ to leave Bayer Leverkusen this summer.
Havertz’s desire it to go to a top club and ‘many indications’ suggest the Germany international wants to join Chelsea.
The Blues are willing to sign him and they also have the financial muscle to complete the transfer, according to the report.
Frank Lampard’s rebuilding project at Stamford Bridge has already kickstarted as the west London club have signed Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner for next season. These two additions represent an ‘interesting sporting perspective’ for Havertz.
In addition to this, Chelsea are in good position to qualify for next season’s Champions League, with two league games to go.
It’s claimed there’s a clear agreement between the player and Leverkusen over a summer move, as long as the Bundesliga side’s demands are met.
Kicker makes it clear that Leverkusen are expecting a fixed fee close to €100m, and bonuses to sanction the player’s transfer. A sale in the immediate future isn’t considered because the German side are still in contention to win the Europa League this season.
