Bayern Munich could offer competition to sign £75m-rated Chelsea star

Bayern Munich could offer Real Madrid competition to sign Chelsea star Kai Havertz

According to the Guardian, Bayern Munich could offer Real Madrid competition in the race to sign Chelsea star Kai Havertz.

The Germany international is valued at £75million by the Blues and he has two years left on his deal. It doesn’t seem likely that he will sign a new deal.

A return to Germany could prove to be beneficial for him. It is a league he knows well, and where he made his name with Bayer Leverkusen.

47 games across competitions and nine goals during that time is a statistic that makes for painful reading. That is especially dire considering he has been playing as a false nine or a No. 9 in recent months.

What next for Havertz?

Playing as a target man isn’t his strongest suit. He can excel playing behind a forward and if that is something Mauricio Pochettino can get him to do, it wouldn’t be a bad idea.

Kind of like Dele Alli – a strong, tall second striker rushing in for second balls behind Harry Kane. But the aforementioned valuation isn’t something to scoff at.

Real Madrid want him as a replacement for Karim Benzema and Bayern Munich have a hole to fill after Robert Lewandowski‘s move to Barcelona last summer. These are European giants.

And it is smart that we are placing a premium price tag on a player still just 23 years old and yet to reach his prime. But we must be wary as to not accept a bargain offer if the situation turns out that way, because given the pedigree of the clubs chasing him, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Havertz tries to force a move.
