The Kai Havertz to Chelsea saga has taken another twist as the German midfielder has reportedly agreed a five-year contract with the Blues.
According to a report published by The Sun, Kai Havertz has agreed on the length of his contract with Chelsea, who have offered him a five-year deal starting this summer. However, the Blues will need to shell out £90 million to secure his services.
Havertz came through the Bayer Leverkusen academy and quickly registered his name in the history of the club and the league. In his first full season in the top flight, Havertz scored 4 goals and assisted 5 assists, all in 24 games, out of which only 15 were starts. However, that was enough to nail his position in the first-team setup, as he went on to make 22 starts the next season.
In 2018/19, the German sensation formed a tremendous partnership with compatriot Julian Brandt under Peter Bosz and scored 17 goals, setting up an additional three in 34 games. He was able to provide the team with a similar tally this season as well, scoring 12 and assisting six.
However, this season, Havertz has been used in a variety of positions across the pitch including defensive midfielder, central midfielder, attacking midfielder, left winger, right winger and even as a striker. He has managed to excel in each of the roles and became the highest scoring Bundesliga player ever before his 21st birthday with 35 goals. All that and more has put him on Chelsea’s radar.
