Bayer Leverkusen do not intend to lower their valuation of Kai Havertz despite the recent financial crisis, asserts Rudi Voller.
Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz enjoyed a remarkable 2019/20 Bundesliga season, scoring 12 goals and registering 6 assists in 30 games.
Among the aforementioned sides, Chelsea are understood to be leading the race. A few reliable journalists have reported that personal terms have already been agreed between the two parties and Chelsea are now negotiating with Leverkusen to bring down the €100m asking price.
However, director Rudi Voller recently suggested that the club are not at all interested in providing a ‘corona discount’ for their prized asset and would stick to their price tag.
“There will be no corona bonus. No matter who the player is, this is a special transfer window,” Voller told Kicker [via Goal].
Voller also insisted that Leverkusen will not sell Havertz before the end of their Europa League campaign.
“It is set in stone,” he added. “There is no new stance.”
