Havertz has become one of the brightest talents in European football since the Leverkusen first team break in 2016, scoring 45 goals in 148 appearances for the club in all competitions.

Some top European clubs are interested to sign Kai Havertz

Uli Hoeness has affirmed that Bayern Munich has left the race to sign Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz. Havertz has become one of the brightest talents in European football since the Leverkusen first team break in 2016, scoring 45 goals in 148 appearances for the club in all competitions. Seventeen of those efforts came in the 2019-20 campaign. He also contributed nine assists to help Peter Bosz’s side finish fifth in the Bundesliga, reaching the final stages of the Europa League. Although the 21-year-old still has two years left to run on his current contract at Bay Arena. Kai is persuaded to leave the club this summer amid interest from some top European clubs.

Chelsea are leading in the race of his signature

The likes of Real Madrid, Juventus, and Manchester United have all been linked with Havertz in recent months. Still, Chelsea are now believed to be leading the race for his signature after entering negotiations with Leverkusen. Bayern was also discussed as a possible next item for Germany international earlier this year. With club legend Lothar Matthaus among those to approve a potential move for a “mega-talent”. However, the Bundesliga champions have already forked out an initial €49 million fee to bring Leroy Sane to the Allianz Arena from Manchester City. So Hoeness does not expect any big-money deals to end in the current financial climate. “I am convinced that after Leroy Sane, there will be no key transfers this year,” Bayern’s Honorary president told reporters.

“It has nothing to do with the class of Havertz. We all think that he is a very, very good player. But in the Crown period after transferring almost 50 million, one of 70, 80 million, or more. I cannot imagine making unless we secure counter-financing through player sales”. When asked when the final decision on Havertz’s future will be made, Leverkusen boss Bosz told reporters over the weekend: “I couldn’t tell. Maybe the crucial challenge will come today, maybe next week, maybe not at all”. As it stands, Havertz will see the remainder of the campaign with the German outfit. Which has a Europa League round of 16 second-leg with the Rangers to look forward to on Thursday.
