‘They know there’s interest’: Boehly ‘waiting for’ an offer from league champions for £75m man – journalist

Journalist Simon Phillips has told GiveMeSport that Todd Boehly is expecting an offer to come from Bayern Munich for Kai Havertz.

The Chelsea man has certainly not yet fully lived up to expectations since his £75m move to join the club in 2020.

This is despite being the man to score one of the most iconic goals in club history, with him being responsible for the winning goal in the 2021 Champions League final.

He took a long time to get going this season too, although he finally opened his account for the campaign with the dramatic winner against London rivals West Ham United.

Despite disappointing for large portions of his time in England, Phillips has claimed that Bayern Munich are almost certain to test Chelsea’s resolve with an offer.

Chelsea expecting Havertz bid

He said: “I think Chelsea are expecting that. They know there’s interest there. They’ve known that for a while so they’re waiting for Bayern to make that offer.

“But you know, that will be in the summer, that won’t be in January. Chelsea wouldn’t entertain it in January.”

The Bundesliga champions have been seemingly struggling a bit more this season after the loss of talisman Robert Lewandowski, with the Blues one of the club’s interested in a deal for the Polish international.

Even with the addition of Sadio Mane, they have struggled to maintain their dominance of the German league up to now.

Havertz has been operated in the central attacking role this season, however his lack of goals could see him left out in the coming games, with a new man in charge still considering who will be in his strongest side.

It has been reported that Graham Potter has been a big fan of Armando Broja in training so far, and he could be in line for his first start of the season when club football returns.
