Kai Havertz joined Chelsea for a transfer fee of up to 80 million euros, making the German star the most expensive contract in the history of the Stamford Bridge team. However, the above figure is considered to be still cheap compared to the value of Havertz, a 21-year-old player and considered the brightest German star at the moment.
What makes Chelsea buy Havertz for a fee of 80 million pounds, in addition to the negotiating ability of female director Marina Granovskaia, thanks to the great sacrifice of the German star.
In the agreement between Chelsea and Bayer Leverkusen, the English team has to pay 80 million euros in advance, leaving about 20 million surcharges depending on the performance of the team and Kai Havertz himself in the future. In total, Havertz’s transfer to Chelsea could be up to 100 million euros.
Notably, in the agreement between the two teams, there is also a provision that Havertz will receive 10% of the transfer fee. However, the 21-year-old himself and his affiliates accept to give up the money, instead receiving bonuses depending on his performance at Chelsea.
Havertz’s move is said to reduce the amount of money Chelsea have to spend on this deal, thereby helping the young German star to join the English team soon.
Kai Havertz is said to have a very good relationship with Chelsea manager Frank Lampard. About half a year ago, the British strategist has been in constant contact with Havertz via phone calls. Coach Lampard is the important reason why the star born in 1999 insisted on choosing Chelsea as his next destination.
