Kai Havertz 'wants to leave Bayer Leverkusen due to their failure to qualify for Champions League… and Chelsea MUST finish in the top four if they are to convince him of move to west London'
Kai Havertz will reportedly only join Chelsea as long as they qualify for next season’s Champions League.
It was previously reported that the starlet has had enough at Bayer Leverkusen and has told the club of his desire to seek pastures new.
Chelsea are leading the race to sign the 21-year-old this summer and are preparing to launch a bid for the forward.
But, according to SportBild’s head of football, Christian Falk, Havertz wants to leave the German outfit in search of Champions League football.
This comes after Chelsea’s pursuit of a top-four finish was damaged on Saturday after they fell to a heavy 3-0 defeat against high-flying Sheffield United.
Should Leicester beat Bournemouth on Sunday and Manchester United take all three points against Southampton on Monday, Chelsea would drop out of the top four.
