Chelsea’s board and owner Roman Abramovich have been driving the Blues’ pursuit of Kai Havertz, instead of manager Frank Lampard. Havertz is set to move Chelsea this week and become their sixth signing of the transfer window.
The Blues have agreed a £72million fee with Bayer Leverkusen and personal terms have long been sorted, with the Germany international set to sign on the dotted line imminently. According to Bleacher Report, it’s been the Blues’ hierarchy and owner Abramovich who have been pushing for the signing of the 21-year-old, rather than Lampard himself.
It’s claimed signing him wasn’t considered likely when Chelsea drew up their transfer plans at the beginning of the year. But now the deal is said to be ‘too good not to do’ given there is currently no competition for the midfielder’s signature.
