Chelsea forward Kai Havertz has refused to rule out a move to Bayern Munich at the end of the season.
With his former manager Thomas Tuchel having now taken charge of the Bundesliga champions, it has raised the prospect of the 23-year-old moving back to Germany. When asked about the possibility, Havertz said:
“Bayern are generally a huge club that it’s hard to say no to as a German player, but my personal goal has always been to play abroad at some point. In England or Spain. I had a very good relationship with him and am very grateful for everything. You never know what will happen in football. Everything can happen very quickly. Never say never.”
Bayern’s reputation among German players means Havertz was never going to dismiss the suggestion of a transfer out of hand, but there have been other reports in recent weeks that have added weight to the rumours.
Sky Sports Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg has made it clear on more than one occasion that Havertz will consider leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
Combined with the fact that Chelsea are interested in Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, but they need to raise funds in order to stay within Financial Fair Play rules, a sale for Havertz is something that may well be considered.
