Chelsea have a new boost in their plans to sign Kai Havertz this summer after Bayern Munich pulled out of the race, MySportDab reports.
The Bundesliga giants were one of the clubs interested in Kai Havertz but have not given up on their plans.
Chelsea are now working on a squad overhaul as Coach Frank Lampard looks to challenge in the Premier League next season.
The Blues are now working on signing Havertz as they look to improve their attack ahead of next season.
MySportDab understands that the 21-year-old has already agreed personal terms with Chelsea while the London club remain in talks with Leverkusen over a fee.
Real Madrid and Bayern Munich previously showed interest in Havertz but a lot has changed now.
Bayern Munich Legend Lothar Matthaus had previously agreed a transfer for the player he described as a “mega-talent”.
but Bayern President Uli Hoeness has now ended the rumours of a possible transfer.
Bayern have already signed Leroy Sane from Manchester City for an initial £44m fee.
“It is confirmed that after Leroy Sane’s transfer, there will be no other major transfers,” Hoeness told German Newspaper FAZ.
“This is not about the quality of Havertz. We all know he is a very good player.
“But in this difficult period after a transfer of around 50m, one of 70, 80m or more I can’t imagine signing anyone else except if we sell.”
Havertz is currently preparing with Leverkusen for the second leg of their Europa League Round-of-16 match against Rangers.
However, it remains unknown whether he will play the match or try to get his Chelsea transfer completed.
Kai Havertz has two years left on his contract at the Bay Arena but has already revealed his desire to leave the club.
