Chelsea set to beat Manchester to the signing of  Leverkusen star

After Manchester United allegedly pulled out of the signing of Kai Havertz, their premier league opponent Chelsea has a clear shot at the Bayer Leverkusen gem now.

The London club are eager to sign Kai and has opened talks with the German club over the week hoping to seal a £75 million deal for the youngster.

Leverkusen are ready to sell Havertz and were hoping a bidding war might erupt for their key man.

According to Daily Star  United have shelved plans to land Havertz this summer so they can focus on sealing the transfer of Ajax star Donny van de Beek.

The Dutchman has attracted interest from the world’s biggest teams in the last 12 months and will reportedly cost around £44 million.

That is a figure significantly lower than Kai, who has provided the same number of assists (7) as Donny and netted just one more goal (15) than his fellow midfielder.

United’s move to Van de Beek will be a big boost to manager Frank Lampard, who has already secured the signature of Ajax playmaker Hakim Ziyech and is closing in on the signing of Timo Werner.

Recall that Chelsea have already agreed to terms with RB Leipzig for their forward, with the Blues set to spend big in the next window in spite of the coronavirus pandemic.
