- Chelsea consider German not as ‘untouchable’
- Blues are preparing massive summer clear out
What’s the news?
Fabrizio Romano wrote on social media that Kai Havertz could potentially make a top transfer to Real Madrid. The German forward had a difficult season with Chelsea, finishing only 12th in the Premier League, but now he could make a significant move in his career. Havertz is on Real Madrid’s wish list, and some influential officials at the club are reportedly great admirers of him.
A transfer for Havertz seemed unthinkable for Chelsea until recently, but the developments in the last few months may have changed that. The Blues have made significant investments in new players and will need to trim their squad during the summer transfer window. Havertz is usually a key player at Stamford Bridge but is reportedly open to a transfer to Madrid, according to Romano.
What did Romano say?
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Romano said the following about Havertz: “I’m told that it’s true, Real Madrid really appreciate Kai Havertz. He is one of the names they mentioned in an internal meeting with Carlo Ancelotti and with people on the board who report to Florentino Perez, so it’s true that they really appreciate Kai Havertz.”
“They believe that Kai Havertz is the kind of creative player with skills that Real Madrid don’t have on their current team… He can play in different positions: behind the striker, as a central striker in emergency situations, and also on the wings. From what I’m told, Chelsea is open to negotiating for Kai Havertz, so [he] is not an untouchable player at Chelsea.”
It is not expected that Real Madrid will make a move for Havertz at the beginning of the transfer window. The Spanish club has a busy transfer summer ahead and will likely prioritize securing the contract extension for Karim Benzema. Chelsea is reportedly asking for around €90 million for Havertz.
