Central reveal that the Blues’ hopes of signing German and Bayer Leverkusen
star Kai Havertz this summer have risen considerably after the Bundesliga
Leverkusen completed their work for the 2019/20 Bundesliga season with a 1-0
home victory against Mainz on Saturday. However, it was not enough for them to
secure Champions League football for next season, which could signify an
important decision by Havertz regarding his future this summer.
only that, but the fact that Leverkusen did not qualify for the elite European
club competition means that they might be ready to offload him for £70m this
summer, unlike the £90m that they value him.
could be seen as a significant breakthrough in Chelsea's hopes for the
offensive midfielder's signing as the Blues strive to spend a lot of money on
other areas of the team, which means that Havertz signing for a cheaper price
is the Blues' hope for sealing the deal for the 21-year-old winger.
Meanwhile, speaking after the clash with Mainz, Bayer Leverkusen boss Peter Bosz did not seem worried about the prospect of Havertz's departure.
Bosz said: "I don’t feel that he is thinking too much about transferring. "I certainly don’t have the impression that this will be his last game for the club. He is still under contract with us and I have to assume that he will be with us next season too. "That will include the German Cup final next month and the next Europa League game against Rangers in August. "Of course, that’s all dependent on nothing happening before then.
