Transfer news LIVE: Mane may replace Messi, more Chelsea signings, Man Utd talks

Havertz to Chelsea update

Chelsea’s pursuit of Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz is reportedly being held up due to the bonus add-ons that make up the transfer fee.

Christian Falk from Bild said: “We know from Leverkusen they thought it could be done on Friday, but I’m not sure if they will make it.

“They’re very close, the parties, because of the price. It’s a question of add-ons.

“€80m should be paid directly and then 10 and 10. The hold up is when.

“In the first negotiations Chelsea said one part is for winning the Champions League and Leverkusen aren’t so keen on this because you can’t win it every year.

“I think it will happen soon.”
