Chelsea suffer blow in quest for Bayer Leverkusen star
Rudi Voller has cautioned Chelsea that Kai Havertz won’t be sold for next to nothing and will stay at the club for another couple of weeks.
Chelsea are accepted to have made signing the Germany playmaker their essential target, having just included Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech to their attacking positions.
Bayer Leverkusen value the 21-year-old at £81.5m and Rudi Voller won’t consider cashing in for anything less, even during a time of financial vulnerability for clubs due to Coronavirus pandemic.
The 60-year-old has also told Chelsea that the sought after attacker will see out the remainder of Bayer’s Europa League campaign, which resumes on Thursday with a most recent 16 second leg against Rangers.
It is unchangeable. There is no new position, he disclosed to German publication when inquired as to whether Leverkusen will consider selling Kai Havertz early.
There will also be no ‘corona reward’. Regardless of who the player is.
Chelsea’s domestic season closes on Saturday when they take on London rivals Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley.
