‘Let It Be Done Already’ ‘Credit to Marina’ Fans React As It is Revealed That Chelsea May Only Pay 72M For New Signing

Chelsea will only pay £72m upfront for Bayer Leverkusen attacking midfielder Kai Havertz, according to Goal correspondent Nizaar Kinsella.

It is thought that there is another £18m due if certain team performance-related targets are met. Although the club are still eventually expected to pay the full £90m, supporters on Twitter are happy with how the deal has been negotiated:

At the time of writing, Havertz hasn’t been officially announced as a Chelsea player but after not turning up for preseason training with Leverkusen, it is thought it is only a matter of time before a transfer is confirmed.

A medical will have to take place, while some paperwork also needs to be signed, but the main details in terms of the transfer fee, add-ons and personal terms have all been sorted out.

If the deal is made official, Havertz will become Chelsea’s record signing, eclipsing the £71.6m that the Blues paid to sign Kepa Arrizabalaga two years ago.
