Chelsea look to have wrapped up the deal to sign Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen, but the announcement still hasn’t been made, with the player now on national team duty with Germany. With the new season less than two weeks away, it’s getting frustrating.
We might just have found out why it’s not been completed yet. Get French Football News reported last night that the German club are interested in taking new Blues signing Malang Sarr on loan.
Chelsea & Bayer Leverkusen are in talks over a loan deal involving Malang Sarr, as it becomes increasingly apparent that Monaco have no intention of selling Benoît Badiashile, who Bayer have made 3 offers for, per sources contacted by Get French Football News. More follows.

If Chelsea are looking to include him in a Havertz deal, that could explain why the main transfer hasn’t been completed, as the two clubs look for a fair way to combine both moves into one package.
Either way, it looks a matter of time before wonderkid Havertz comes to Stamford Bridge. If we can sweeten the deal by sending them a promising young defender to develop on loan, so much the better.
