Leroy Sane is not surprised to see Chelsea pursuing a deal for Kai Havertz, with the Germany international pleased to see fellow countrymen attracting interest from the Premier League.
Sane has taken the decision to bid farewell to English football in the summer transfer window, with life at Manchester City traded in for that at Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
As he returns to his homeland, several compatriots could find themselves heading in the opposite direction.
Sane admits that Havertz would be quite a coup for the Blues, with an ambitious project being pieced together that already includes another German in the form of Antonio Rudiger.
“Two Germans with Timo Werner and Kai Havertz in one year, that’s quite a coup for Chelsea,” Sane told reporters at his official unveiling as a Bayern Munich player. “There’s no question that Germany has very good youth development.”
Rudiger has addressed the rumours of Havertz making his way to England.
He has told Sky Deutschland:
“Kai is talented, when I saw him train with the Germany national team I was like, ‘wow!’ I would be lying to you if I said I didn’t want him at Chelsea.”
