Chelsea target Kai Havertz played for his team Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League last night, as expected.
The deal is very close to being completed, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. But Chelsea will probably have to wait until Bayer are either knocked out of the Europa League, or they win it!
This is because it would appear that part of the agreement of the deal is to allow Havertz to finish the season at his club in it’s entirety, which includes Europe.
Romano believes that the two clubs will confirm an agreement on an €80m (£72.2m) fee for Havertz to finally join Chelsea.
…because he wants to join Chelsea. Talks still on with Bayer Leverkusen. Chelsea hope to find an agremeent around €80m as final fee after Europa League.
Bayern would be in the race just for summer 2021 if Havertz will not leave now (so difficult…). 🔵 #CFC https://t.co/xvpdWv6ubx

The German international has already agreed personal terms with Chelsea, as Romano reported yesterday. So it is just the finer details to be signed off, and the wait for Bayer’s participation in the Europa League to finish.
