Chelsea was knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich with an embarrassing aggregate score of 7-1. It seemed they had forgotten to play football as Lewandoski made a record of having 3+ goals and assists in a single Champions League match.
Frank Lampard is a quick learner and he has already started planning for the next season. Chelsea had already signed Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner. They were interested in Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz. Chelsea had already agreed on personal terms with the Germany international, who was supposed to join the London club on a five-year deal this summer. But Chelsea and Leverkusen were still negotiating over the transfer fee for the 21-year-old.
Now, it has been confirmed by transfer journalist, Fabrizio Romano that Chelsea has submitted a club record bid of €100 m (€80m + €20m add ons). Bayer Leverkusen are happy with the offer and are going to accept the deal. This transfer fee is going to surpass the previous club-record of €80m that Chelsea paid for Kepa Arrizabalaga two years ago.
New bid submitted three days ago. Bayer Leverkusen told to Chelsea on last night… they’re going to accept. Same today morning with Havertz himself. Paperworks time is now on. ✍🏻🔵 #CFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 24, 2020

Romano posted on Instagram the full analysis of the transfer saga: “Havertz-Chelsea, here we go soon!”
“Kai Havertz to Chelsea, one step away and then… here we go! Total agreement to be reached with Bayer Leverkusen. Last bid is going to be accepted. €80M + €20M add ons as final fee. Last details to be completed soon and then paperworks time.”
“Three days ago, Chelsea submitted a new bid for €100M (add ons included). Bayer Leverkusen told yesterday night to Chelsea board and to the player they’re going to say “yes”. Just a matter of time.”
“Personal terms already agreed weeks ago, Kai was pushing to join after speaking with Lampard and he wants to play Champions League football. Havertz contract with Chelsea will be until June 2025.”.
Kai Havertz has scored 17 goals in all competitions for Bayer Leverkusen this season. The 21-year-old’s versatility and willingness to play across various forward positions only adds to his value. Voller described him as a mixture of Michael Ballack and Mesut Ozil.
Frank Lampard has now signed Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, who will join his previous attacking forces including the likes of Christian Pulisic, Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud, Mason Mount and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Lampard is also improving his defensive areas. PSG captain Thiago Silva is expected to join on a free transfer with Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell on the verge of signing for the Blues as well.
