Chelsea star Kai Havertz has been coy about his future, implying that he would be open to reuniting with former manager Thomas Tuchel.
Chelsea Transfer News:
With his latest comments, Chelsea star Kai Havertz has hinted that a move to Bayern Munich could be on the cards in the near future.
Havertz joined Chelsea in 2020 for a then-record fee of £72 million, as the Blues flexed their spending muscles during a busy summer transfer window.
The German has struggled to capture the imagination on a consistent basis, but his 2021 Champions League final strike will live on in Chelsea history.
The 23-year-old in a recent interview about where his future lay and whether he would follow his former manager back to the Bundesliga now that Thomas Tuchel is at Bayern Munich.

The German said in a letter to Bild “Bayern are generally a huge club that it’s hard to say no to as a German player, but my personal goal has always been to play abroad at some point. In England or Spain.
“I had a very good relationship with [Tuchel] and am very grateful for everything.
“You never know what will happen in football. Everything can happen very quickly. Never say never.”
Kai Havertz has been a favourite under Graham Potter, but with plenty of competition for spots, it wouldn’t be surprising if he left. The attacker has a similar profile to Joao Felix, who is expected to join after a loan spell, and the incoming Christopher Nkunku, despite his 19 goals in over 80 Premier League appearances.
Chelsea are expected to sell Mason Mount this summer following a contract issue. Reece James has also been linked with a move away from west London, with Real Madrid interested.
