Leroy Sane comments on Kai Havertz's reported Chelsea move

Leroy Sane’s comment about Timo Werner and Kai Havertz joining Chelsea has sparked speculation that the Blues have reached an agreement with Bayer Leverkusen.

Some people believe Sane leaked the transfer as he congratulated Chelsea for signing Werner and Havertz although only the former has already been announced at the moment.

The new Bayern Munich signing told the media (as quoted by the Metro): “I think Germany has always had very good young German players. I can’t answer why they’re looking at young players now.

“Many young players get their chance and develop well in the Bundesliga. I think that with Werner and Havertz, which are two Germans in one year, Chelsea did a good job.”

However, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the statement was not a confirmation from a Germany teammate, but a bit more complicated than that.

Romano claimed Sane basically knows Havertz wants to join Chelsea and the latter is pushing for the move.

He added that Chelsea and Havertz have already agreed a contract until 2025 as reported before, but Chelsea still have to find an agreement with Leverkusen.

These claims align with a previous report from Sky Germany which said Chelsea technical and performance advisor Petr Cech will fly to Germany after the conclusion of the Premier League season to hold face-to-face talks with Leverkusen.

The report added that Leverkusen still demand a transfer fee of around £90million for their star, but Chelsea are looking for a deal at an initial fee of around £70m with performance-related add-ons included.
