Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has given Chelsea a huge transfer boost by ruling his club out of the running for Kai Havertz.
It is no secret in the media that we are huge fans of the Germany star, and have been keeping a very close eye on his performances over the past few months, where he has netted an impressive 37 goals in the last couple of seasons.
However, there has been some rumours in the media that we are not the only club interested in trying to sign the services of Havertz when the transfer window opens up, as there is also talk that the likes of Bayern Munich were interested in signing him too.
But just as those rumours surfaced, they seemingly went away, as Bayern decided to make a bargain move and splash £55million on Manchester City winger Leroy Sane, who was desperate to leave the Premier League giants.
Now Marina Granovskaia has been handed the golden opportunity to sign £90m-rated Havertz for the club, as Rummenigge claims the Bundesliga champions can’t afford to finance a deal for 21-year-old Bayer Leverkusen star Havertz as a result.
He told Sport1: “I say very clearly, financially a transfer for Havertz will not be possible this year.
“It’s my wish for (Bayer chief) Rudi Voller that he stays one more year in Leverkusen.”
The revelation will be music to the boards ears as we look to further strengthen their attack this summer, but as we have said before, it is now time to focus on the defensive side of the squad before he we decide to splash mega money on trying to sign Havertz in the transfer window.
