Real Madrid are reportedly interested in signing struggling Chelsea attacker Kai Havertz at the end of the season.
A report from Defensa Central has claimed that Real Madrid will be keeping tabs on Kai Havertz. during the World Cup. And Los Blancos could make a move for the struggling Chelsea attacker if he manages to impress in Qatar with Germany.
The 23-year-old joined Chelsea back in 2020, but he has not been able to live up to the expectations so far. Havertz made an impressive start to his Chelsea career, and he helped the Blues win the UEFA Champions League title by scoring the match-winning goal in the final against Manchester City. However, things have gone downhill since then.
The German international has scored just 27 goals across all competitions for Chelsea since 2020, and the Blues have struggled because of the lack of goals in their front three. Havertz has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge at the end of the season
Recent reports have linked the struggling Chelsea attacker with Manchester City. But it will be interesting to see if Real Madrid are prepared to offer him an exit route. There is no doubt that the German is a top-class talent who has the potential to develop into a world-class footballer, and perhaps a move to Real Madrid could help unlock his potential.
It is evident that Havertz is not a prolific goalscorer, and if Real Madrid manage to play to his strengths, the German international could excel at the Spanish club. The 23-year-old has often led the line at Chelsea. But he is more comfortable in a false nine role or as an attacking midfielder. Furthermore, Havertz has the versatility to operate in wide areas as well.
The player is quite young and has a lot of time to fulfil his potential. Working with a top-class coach like Carlo Ancelotti could help him get back to his peak form. It remains to be seen whether Havertz can put on a series of impressive displays in the World Cup and convince Real Madrid to fork out a sizeable fee for him.
The report from Defensa Central claims that Real Madrid wanted to sign the player before he joined Chelsea. But the Spanish club were struggling with a lack of funds because of the Coronavirus outbreak, and they had to put their pursuit of German international on hold.
