Midfielder Kai Havertz is very close to Chelsea after refusing to have a pre-season fitness check with owner Bayer Leverkusen.
Chelsea ‘s top goal at the moment, midfielder Kai Havertz has taken another step closer than ever to the Stamford Bridge team when he refuses to participate in the new pre-season fitness test of Bayer Leverkusen.
Kai Havertz appeared to have turned his mind to Chelsea as the German star was not present during the pre-season fitness test requested by Bayer Leverkusen. According to Bild, the 21-year-old midfielder completed mandatory Covid-19 tests with the German national team when he was summoned to prepare for the UEFA Nations League campaign.
However, at the latest fitness test of Bayer Leverkusen, Havertz was absent and tacitly sent a message to prepare to leave the German team. This is a move very similar to the way superstar Lionel Messi recently also applied to the Barcelona team.
Of course this action is not a 100% affirmation, but it is clear that Havertz wants to focus on joining Chelsea. According to a reliable source from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the deal is only a matter of time.
It is known that to get Havertz’s signature, Chelsea have to spend up to 70 million pounds with additional fees related to Havertz’s performance after wearing the England team. Before focusing on this deal, “The Blues” successfully recruited a series of recruits including Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr.
Chelsea’s opening Premier League match will be a trip to Brighton for more than two weeks. It was a pretty short period of time and if Havertz was unable to land at Chelsea this week, the 1999 midfielder was expected to have a difficult time integrating and the necessary preparation for the new season. Maybe that’s why he is straining to put pressure on Leverkusen.
