The conclusion of the Kai Havertz saga continues to drag on like a movie that’s two hours long when 90 minutes would suffice, but we’re slowly coming to the end, at long last.
As per the usual sources, the 21-year-old has passed his Chelsea medical on Sunday and now it’s truly just a matter of dotting the things that need to be dotted and crossing the things that need to be crossed. And I don’t mean fingers. This is happening. Most likely. Probably. (Famous last words, ey?)
Havertz had reportedly signed personal terms well over a week ago at this point (if not almost a month ago), but these final details have been proving elusive to nail down. But it sounds like an agreement has been reached at around €80m, with €20m in add-ons plus maybe a loan of Malang Sarr included as part of the arrangement as well.
In practical terms, the delay hasn’t affected too much of anything since Havertz is now with the Germany squad alongside (future) Chelsea teammates Timo Werner and (Agent) Antonio Rüdiger. Hopefully they all come away unscathed and uninjured from these poorly timed Nations League matches.
Season starts in two weeks!
