Bayern Munich in pole position to land Kai Havertz (The Independent)
According to Miguel Delaney of The Independent, Bayern Munich are set to beat a whole host of clubs to the signing of Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen. The Bavarians hope to sign a deal in the coming weeks.
While other big clubs like Real Madrid have shown interest in the youngster, Haverts prefers Bayern as a destination. Bayer Leverkusen have accepted that they’re set to lose the player this summer, and are looking to get around 90m euros as a transfer fee.
Sounds plausible, as far as rumors go. But is it true? Bild reporter Tobias Altschaffl doesn’t think so:
Reports that #fcbayern and Kai Havertz agree and the transfer is only a matter of time are wrong, according to @SPORTBILD information. @BILD_Sport #havertz @cfbayern— Tobi Altschäffl (@altobelli13) June 6, 2020
Let’s see where things go from here.

Bartomeu, the snake-oil salesman that he is, is trying to offload another one of his bad investments onto Bayern. According to Sport, the Catalans value the Portugese right back at 40m euros, and hope that Bayern might come to their rescue. Unfortunately for them, Bayern Munich already have a much better (and younger) defensive right back in Benjamin Pavard, and are also pursuing Sergino Dest in the transfer market. This one is unlikely to go through.

Arturo Vidal issues statement about his roots — in a Bayern Munich jersey
June 6, 2020
“I’m a man of the people, I come from one of the poorest neighborhoods of Santiago, and today I can say that what I am is thanks to the people who grew up with me and lived the same I did, thanks to them to, family and friends.”
“And for those without memory, who want to leave me in bad terms with the people, who care more about the colors than equality in our country. That’s why, I, give everything in what I do, I’m not a man of words, I’m real and I have won everything deservedly.”
There’s a lot going on in that tweet — we’ll let you be the judge.
