Bayern Munich want star duo from Chelsea


After replacing Julian Nagelsmann as Bayern’s manager, Thomas Tuchel, a former Chelsea manager, was recently introduced, and the Bundesliga powerhouses wasted little time in beginning their summer transfer plans.

According to sources who spoke to 90min, Bayern executives have contacted Tuchel about the possibility of buying Mount this summer if he continues to turn down Chelsea’s offers of a new deal.

While Mount’s position is being monitored, it is believed that Havertz is Bayern’s main priority for the summer, not Mount, who is believed to be Bayern’s second-choice target.

After Havertz’s rise to stardom with Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern has been watching his career ever since he signed for Chelsea for €80 million in 2020.

There is a belief that Havertz is eager to transfer this summer as Bayern consider the 23-year-old as a long-term replacement for seasoned forward Thomas Muller, who will turn 34 in September.

Havertz said it would “clearly” be difficult to reject Bayern in a recent interview with Bild, but he also showed desire in working with Tuchel again.

My dream has always been to play overseas and see a different nation, but Bayern is a massive club and for me, especially as a German, it’s difficult to say no, he said.

“Definitely!” When questioned if he would wish to work with his former boss once more, Havertz said. “With football, anything may happen at any time. Everything has a very short time frame. Never rule anything out.”

Although Havertz is entering the final two years of his contract at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea may be forced to make a decision at the end of the current campaign.

As previously reported by 90min, Chelsea is eager to keep players from signing contracts that expire within the next 24 months, and club officials are ready to approve sales for any disgruntled players who might threaten to depart on free transfers.

If Havertz insists on leaving this summer, Chelsea could have to give him a hearing because the Blues need to offload some players from their overcrowded roster. Chelsea is conscious that money needs to be generated following a costly year of signings that could end without any Champions League games, in addition to the impracticality of such a huge group of players.

Selling Havertz would go a long way toward assisting Chelsea in funding a transfer for the Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen of Napoli, who is now Chelsea’s most costly top target to join, as well as the impending arrival of Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig.
