The long talk about the Bayern Leverkusen midfielder, Kai Havertz to secure signing for the Frank Lampard tutored side, Chelsea.
Chelsea transfer guru Marina Granoviskaia has been told by Bayer Leverkusen that she has to get the Kai Havertz deal done by August 28.
That gives football’s most powerful woman a WEEK to wrap up the transfer.
According to Kevin Palmer, Leverkusen want the deal sorted either way in seven days’ time, in order to get a replacement in for next season.
The two sides were, at last glance, around £9million apart in their valuations for the attacking midfielder, 21.
Havertz has his heart set on a switch to Stamford Bridge, but Chelsea also need to get business done in defence and midfield.
