Havertz expected to undergo medical in London before completing move. Kai Havertz has left Germany’s training camp to fly to London ahead of a club-record move to Chelsea.
The Bayer Leverkusen midfielder is set to join Chelsea from the Bundesliga side after the clubs agreed a package of €80m plus €20m in add-ons on Wednesday, according to Sky in Germany.
Havertz was in Stuttgart with Germany’s squad for their UEFA Nations League fixtures, having been an unused substitute as they drew 1-1 with Spain on Thursday night.
Both Bayer Leverkusen and Germany confirmed Havertz’s departure on Friday morning, with the club thanking the national side for cooperating.
“I exchanged ideas with Oliver Bierhoff and Jogi Low over the past few days,” Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller said. “They understand the special situation of the player and also of us as a club.
“We are grateful to the national coach that Kai can now sort things out with our support on site in London.”
It remains unclear whether Havertz will be able to rejoin Germany’s squad for Sunday’s Nations League match against Switzerland.
