Report: Kai Havertz could have Chelsea medical on Saturday as transfer fee agreed
Bayer Leverkusen ace Kai Havertz could reportedly fly to London for his Chelsea medical on Saturday after the two clubs reached an agreement over an initial £71.2million transfer fee.
According to the report from Sky Germany, Chelsea and Leverkusen agreed on the final details about the structure of the deal on Thursday.
The Blues would initially pay €80million (£71.2m) to the Germans, while up to €20million (£17.8m) can be added in the next few years through various bonus payments, the report claimed.
However, the report also added that Havertz, who is currently in Stuttgart with Germany for their UEFA Nations League fixture against Spain, is yet to have his medical with Chelsea.
We have also previously covered the contradictory reports regarding the 21-year-old’s possible Chelsea medical.
On a positive note for Chelsea fans, Sky Germany also mentioned that Havertz could have his medical in London on Saturday, September 5, provided he receives permission from the DFB.
However, given the Germany squad will visit Switzerland on Sunday for another Nations League fixture, it would be a surprise if they allowed him to leave one day before the game.
Recently, Chelsea star and Havertz’s Germany teammate Antonio Rudiger said he is trying to lure Havertz to Chelsea, similar to how he convinced Timo Werner a few months ago.
Speaking in a press conference on Tuesday, the defender said (as quoted by Sport1): “Everything went well with Timo Werner, so I made my contribution.
“And I hope that it works again [with Havertz] now.”
