Bayer Leverkusen manager Peter Bosz says Kai Havertz has made already a decision concerning his future and admits he could move any day now.
The midfielder has been linked with an exit away from the club this summer, though Leverkusen want around £90m for him.
Chelsea are keen on the player, but Leverkusen director Simon Rolfes says they are yet to receive any offer for the Germany international.
However, Bosz has been impressed by the way Havertz has handled the speculation around his future, but admits the 21-year-old could leave anytime from now.
“I talk to Kai a lot and try to feel what all this does to him. For example, these daily rumours about transfers,” he told Deutschen Presse-Agentur .
“I keep finding that Kai is handling all of this very well. I don’t think he will stop playing at 29 [like Andre Schurrle]. “Yes, I know what he wants to do, but of course I’m not going to give it away, it’s up to him.”
Asked when a final decision will be made converning Havertz, Bosz said: “I couldn’t say. Perhaps the crucial call will come today, maybe next week, maybe not at all.”

Havertz has been in good form this season, scoring 17 goals and providing eight assists for Bayer Leverkusen in 2019-20 and has been tipped to become one of the best players in the world.
While the Leverkusen coach is not sure if he will reach the level of superstars like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, he says he is already being regarded as one of the best in Germany.
“You never know [if Havertz will become world-class player like Messi or Ronaldo]. But in Germany he is treated as if he was already one,” he said.
“That is why I try to do something about it when the headlines are always about Kai. We have a lot of great players in the squad.”
