Chelsea seeking £20M discount on Havertz price

Chelsea will be seeking a £20m discount on the price for wantaway Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz.

ESPN says the attacking midfielder will be forced to leave his current side if he wants to play in the Champions League after they slipped to a fifth-placed finish in the table, and he has now outlined his favoured destination.

Having picked Chelsea, director Marina Granovskaia might not have to match his £90m asking price.

The fact that Havertz has made his desire to move to London clear, the club are hoping to only part with £70m for his services.

Real Madrid have not shown willingness to make a formal offer, and that Bayern Munich have already pulled out of the running.
