Chelsea in pole position to sign Kai Havertz as Bayern Munich and Real Madrid dropped out
Chelsea have been given a significant lift in their quest for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz.
Chelsea are leading the race to sign Kai Havertz after Bayern Munich and Real Madrid purportedly retreated from a transfer for the Germany playmaker.
The Blues affirmed the a £47.8m signing of RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner from RB Leipzig and hours later there is a news that both European giants had removed themselves from the running for Kai Havertz.
Reports states that Real Madrid are not keen on signing the Bayer Leverkusen playmaker until next summer.
Such has been the effect of the coronavirus pandemic, financially they are not in a situation to move for Kai Havertz.
Kai Havertz want a move to Real Madrid but since the Covid-19 pandemic that has affected many clubs financially they will have to wait till next season before they can sign him.
Bayern Munich have their sights set on Manchester City attacker Leroy Sane and can’t manage the fee of Kai Havertz too.
Ivisionsport report Bayer Leverkusen are requesting around £90m for Kai Havertz, but in the event that they fail to make Champions League, that figure could drop to £70m which is valuation Chelsea are ready to pay.
Chelsea can’t just spend enormously without making some money back. Ivisionsport guarantees a host of reinforcement players – in addition to three set up stars – are all available to anyone.
That could see Chelsea sell 13 first-team playersbwhen the transfer window revives, including Ngolo Kante.
