LEROY SANE has appeared to let slip Chelsea will definitely sign Kai Havertz this summer.
The Blues have been leading the race for the Bayer Leverkusen midfielder who is regarded as the brightest young talent in Germany.
And ex-Manchester City ace looks to have confirmed that deal is now done.
Sane appeared to let it slip during his first press conference as a Bayern Munich player.
The German winger said: “It‘s good for Chelsea that they signed two German top talents with Werner and Havertz this summer.”
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been at pains to avoid speaking about Havertz while his side continue their battle to secure Champions League football.
The gaffe came just hours after it was claimed Petr Cech would fly to Germany to tempt Havertz to joining the Stamford Bridge side.
The German outfit were originally demanding an eye-watering £90m fee for the impressive forward but with only two years remaining on his contract they are resigned to losing him for less.
According to Sky Germany, Blues technical director Cech is set to hold “face-to-face talks” with the 21-year-old.
The Chelsea legend also helped pulled the strings of Timo Werner’s deal when he made an “undercover” trip to Germany before lockdown.
Cech, who speaks fluent German, was on hand at the time to iron out any communication issues with the player’s father and agent.
Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger also helped his side to seal deal but Cech may not have to do too much convincing when it comes to Havertz.
