Midfielder Kai Havertz intends to leave Bayer this offseason.
The 21-year-old midfielder told the Leverkusen club management of his desire to change the team.

The transaction amount is estimated at approximately 100 million euros. Chelsea can pay immediately 70 million, and another 30 – in the form of various bonuses.
This season, Havertz played 30 matches for the Bayer in the Bundesliga, scored 12 goals and made 6 assists.
