Bayer Leverkusen have changed their mind on their demands for Kai Havertz. While the German club is unwilling to move under their €100m asking price for the midfielder, they are now open to accepting bonuses and add-ons as part of the sale, Bild reports.
The talented midfielder has been linked with moves to Chelsea and Real Madrid, but both clubs had troubles meeting Leverkusen’s demands. With Havertz keen on changing clubs this summer, Leverkusen have decided they will accept a lower initial offer if that also has a series of bonuses that could match or even exceed their €100m asking price.
This could be a big breakthrough in the proposed transfer of Havertz, but could hurt Chelsea in their hunt for the midfielder. The Blues appeared to be the only club willing to meet Leverkusen’s high demands, but with the Germans accepting add-ons and bonuses Real Madrid could be back into the game to sign Havertz.
