Last summer, Bayern Munich inquired about signing Kai Havertz, according to German journalist Christian Falk.
The Bundesliga powerhouses contacted the Chelsea forward’s agents about a potential transfer.
Havertz’s representatives, however, flatly refused to respond.
Kai’s potential has yet to be realized, which prompted Chelsea to agree to pay Bayer Leverkusen an initial £62 million transfer fee in 2020.
Regardless, the forward who scored the game-winning goal in the 2021 Champions League final appears content in his new home at Stamford Bridge.
According to Bundesliga journalist, Christian Falk on Twitter, German champions Bayern Munich has approached Chelsea forward Kai Havertz’s representatives about a possible transfer. The answer was unequivocally negative.
After losing their talisman number nine, Robert Lewandowski, to Barcelona, it would have made sense for the Munich-based team to look to sign Havertz.
The former Bayer Leverkusen player has chosen to remain at Chelsea and finish his story there for at least one more season.
Havertz signed a five-year deal when he joined the Blues back in 2020, keeping him under contract with them until the summer of 2025. (Transfermarkt).
He hasn’t had great goal-scoring form over the past 18 months. Since the beginning of the previous season, he has made 53 appearances in the league and Champions League but only managed to score 14 goals.
The 23-year-overall old’s talent is still very high, though. The burden of scoring might not fall on Havertz since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is now the line’s leader.
The player has enough talent and potential to succeed consistently very soon, even though he might be looking for his best role under Graham Potter.
In addition, Potter is probably one of the best coaches at placing the players in the best positions. We might see the best of the German week in and week out if he can do that with Havertz and assign him a specific role.
Though he led the line and scored the decisive goal in the Champions League final during the second half of the 2020–21 season, Chelsea fans will never forget that performance. He scored a stunning goal against RB Salzburg on Tuesday to help the team win the game and their group, reminding us of all of his talents.
