Avram Grant claims Bayer Leverkusen will be powerless to resist selling Kai Havertz to Chelsea if the Blues’ billionaire owner Roman Abramovich wants the German

The financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, combined with our recent deals for Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, have led to suggestions the club might not be willing to meet Leverkusen’s £90 million asking price for the German, despite the reports that he wants to complete a move to London.

But amid all the speculation, Grant thinks we will sign anyone if the owner wants them, Speaking to Stats Perform News, Grant said: “Abramovich didn’t have a problem with money before! When he wants something, he buys it.

“He doesn’t do things to save money. Whether they have more or less money, I don’t think it’s important.

“What I think is important is that they started to use the academy. They spent so much money on it and they didn’t give anyone a chance [before]. My policy at Chelsea was that we wanted one third of the squad as under-21 players, because you cannot invest a lot into the academy and not give them a chance.

“Now, not as a policy, they gave them a chance, and Frank has done a great job. Michael Emenalo, a director, was always complaining that we invested a lot of money in them [academy players] but we don’t give them a chance.

“When you have a good young player, they can develop a lot and there are a lot of good talents at Chelsea, and we’re in a good phase for the coming years.

“With a good signing they can compete with Liverpool or Man City. [Havertz] has the quality. We need to wait and see [if he’s the one to bridge the gap].”
