Bayern Munich new signing Leroy Sane appears to have confirmed Kai Havertz’ transfer move to Chelsea from Bayer Leverkusen.
The former Manchester City star ended months of speculation surrounding his future by signing for the Bundesliga champions this month for a fee of £54.8million.
Timo Werner’s move to Chelsea was confirmed last month and Havertz appears destined to follow him to the Stamford Bridge and form vital part of the attacking unit Frank Lampard is creating at the club.
The Blues are expected to complete the deal for Havertz once Champions League qualification is secured with the attacking midfielder keen to join.
Chelsea missed the chance to guarantee a top four finish last night when they were defeated 5-3 by Premier League champions Liverpool.
Should Lampard’s side avoid defeat against Wolves on Sunday, however, Chelsea will secure entry to the Champions League, regardless of what happens between Leicester and Manchester United.
Speaking at his own unveiling, Sane appeared to reveal to Havertz’s next club when asked about the number of quality of players Germany are producing, saying: ‘I think Germany has always had very good young German players. I can’t answer why they’re looking at young players now.
‘Many young players get their chance and develop well in the Bundesliga. I think that with Werner and Havertz, which are two Germans in one year, Chelsea did a good job.
‘Germany has good youth work and the whole world knows that. That is of course attractive for the teams abroad.’
Bayern Munich are yet to conclude their Champions League tie against Chelsea but are in a good position having won the first-leg 3-0 in London and is confident he has signed for a team which can compete for the biggest prize in Europe.

‘Winning the Champions League is generally difficult. Bayern has done it a few times. I was looking for something new, a new attraction. It was clear to me that if I made a move, it would be a club that could win the Champions League.
‘Bayern certainly can win the Champions League. The team is at a top level. Hansi Flick has done very well. You can see on the pitch that everyone is having. So that was the right decision for me.’
