After confirming the exits of Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Eden Hazard, and Mariano Diaz, the Spanish team is aiming to strengthen their forward line this summer, and Havertz is considered as a cost-effective, elite alternative.
This summer, Havertz will begin the final two years of his contract, and Chelsea, which is loath to have any player reach that point in their agreement, has stated that he still has a future with the team.
However, according to a number of news sources, Chelsea executives are fully aware of the necessity to sell players this summer in order to raise money, and Havertz, one of the club’s highest earners, may very well be sold if he expresses a wish to depart.
While willing to work with Havertz, new Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino is also willing to approve the 23-year-old’s transfer if the proper offer materializes. There are many interested teams in Europe.
As was previously reported in March, Bayern Munich is eager to recruit Havertz, but Real Madrid has also recently spoken with the German’s representation and is thought to be quite interested in enticing him to the Santiago Bernabeu.
According to a number of press sources, Paris Saint-Germain has also been informed about the potential summer exit of Havertz, whose prospects of leaving Chelsea are increasing as demand for his services rises.
Since joining Chelsea in the summer of 2020, Havertz has made 139 appearances, primarily playing as the team’s center striker. However, the Blues are hoping to add to that position this summer and have targeted Napoli’s Victor Osimhen as their ideal acquisition.
