Former Manchester City winger Leroy Sane has appeared confirmed Kai Havertz’s move to Stamford Bridge in his unveiling at Bayern Munich.
The 24-year-old was asked why German player are so in-demand in the Premier League with RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner having already signed for the Stamford Bridge outfit this summer.
And Sane replied: ‘I think Germany has always had very good young German players. Many young players get their chance and develop well in the Bundesliga. I think that with Werner and Havertz, two Germans in one year, Chelsea did a good job.’
Chelsea have been heavily linked with the Bayer Leverkusen star who has netted 17 goals and contributing nine assists in all competitions this season.
The 21-year-old creative midfielder was reportedly set to ask his current club to allow him to make the move to Stamford Bridge upon his return to training this week.
