Peter Bosz notifies that the final decision regarding the future of Kai Havertz could be expected in the coming days.

Talks of Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz’s potential move to Chelsea have intensified in the past few days.

It is being reported that Havertz has already agreed to personal terms with Chelsea. The two clubs are now negotiating a transfer fee, with Leverkusen unwilling to compromise on their €100 million valuation while Chelsea looking to seal the deal at €80 million.

Earlier, director Rudi Voller confirmed that the club do not intend to reduce their asking price for the 21-year old despite the recent financial crisis.

While refusing to dive into much details, manager Peter Bosz insisted that Havertz has already made a decision over his future.

“I talk to Kai a lot and try to feel what all this does to him. For example, these daily rumors about transfers,” he told Deutschen Presse-Agentur, via Goal.

“I keep finding that Kai is handling all of this very well. I don’t think he will stop playing at 29 [like Andre Schurrle].

“Yes, I know what he wants to do, but of course I’m not going to give it away, it’s up to him. I couldn’t say. Perhaps the crucial call will come today, maybe next week, maybe not at all.”
