‘Had conversations’: International manager confirms he has spoken to 24-year-old about his Chelsea future
Germany manager Hansi Flick has claimed he has already held conversations with Kai Havertz over his Chelsea future.
He told Sky Germany that he wouldn’t reveal any details from the chat due to them not yet being spoken about publicly.
Reports over recent weeks have strongly linked Havertz with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer after another underwhelming season.
First, Carlo Ancelotti was leading the interest in bringing the mercurial talent in to Real Madrid, however the La Liga side made it clear that they would not spend the fee the Blues were holding out for.
However, they have recently seen Premier League rivals Arsenal declare their interest in a deal, with them prepared to wrap up a deal as early as this week.
Havertz has spoken to Flick
It has been reported today that the Gunners are offering up to £60m in order to sign the German international, who has made it clear that he wants to leave West London this summer.
He is currently finishing off representing his country on international duty, before the players are rewarded with a well-earned break between seasons.
His manager, Flick, has claimed that he has already been in discussion with the forward over what his future plans are.
He said: “Kai [Havertz] and I have had conversations [about his future], but I won’t reveal them because they haven’t been talked about publicly yet.”
Chelsea supporters will not be feeling particularly upset about the potential that the player leaves the club this summer, especially if they can recall a large amount of the fee they paid for him to Bayer Leverkusen.
His biggest defenders will point to the fact that he has hardly been used in his favourite position, however it does seem as if his time at Stamford Bridge has come to an end.
