Bayern Munich will not be making a move for Kai Havertz of Bayer Leverkusen unless they manage to raise some funds through player sales, Uli Hoeness has revealed.
The 21-year-old attacking midfielder has been linked with a number of top clubs across Europe in recent months, though lately reports intensified claiming Chelsea were in serious talks with Leverkusen about Havertz potentially following former RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner from Germany to Stamford Bridge. Real Madrid, Manchester United and Liverpool were reportedly interested as well, but only Chelsea appear willing to meet Leverkusen’s demands in terms of the transfer fee, and that only through a structured payment which would consist of a lower initial fee and significant add-ons. The two clubs still haven’t reached a final agreement, though Havertz is said to be pushing for the move to happen.
Bayern have already acquired the services of winger Leroy Sane from Manchester City, and with that business coming in a time of financial crisis due to the ongoing pandemic, Hoeness told German outlet FAZ that further expensive additions are impossible this summer, unless players are sold first, despite the Bundesliga champions rating Havertz highly.
