Germany teammate says Kai Havertz is relaxed ahead of potential 'next step' at Chelsea

Borussia Monchengladbach and Germany defender Matthias Ginter said Kai Havertz is relaxed about his potential huge Chelsea transfer.

Havertz is currently in Stuttgart, along with Chelsea stars Timo Werner and Antonio Rudiger and the rest of Germany’s squad, in preparations for their UEFA Nations League’s fixtures against Spain and Switzerland.

The 21-year-old is expected to complete his Chelsea transfer after Bayer Leverkusen boss Peter Bosz admitted that he did not expect Havertz to train with them anymore.

Despite the media coverage of the reported initial £72million (£90m including add-ons) move to Chelsea, which would break the Blues’ transfer record and make him the most expensive German footballer ever, the player himself is quite calm according to his Germany teammate Ginter.

Ginter told Spox on Tuesday: “He [Havertz] is deeply relaxed, both on and off the pitch.

“You get the feeling that he doesn’t care so much about what’s being written and instead just does his thing.”

Former Bayer Leverkusen boss Tayfun Korkut previously called  Havertz “an iceman” due to his mental strength in facing challenges such as big games. But apparently it also translates to his demeanor off the pitch.

“It [a move to Chelsea] can be the next step for him,” Ginter added.

“He has the absolute potential to do so. He is a very good boy who is calm and always tries to say anything.

“The calm he brings is also a quality. That’s why I don’t think he’s going to let the speculations drive him crazy.”
