A Chelsea fan believes the Blues are close to signing Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz after meeting Chelsea technical advisor Petr Cech outside of Wembley Stadium on Saturday.
Cech reportedly jetted to Germany this week to conduct talks with Leverkusen and Havertz himself and returned to the UK in time to watch Chelsea’s FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal on Saturday.
While outside of Wembley Stadium, a Chelsea fan videoed himself asking Cech if the Blues are signing Havertz and Cech replied: “Good try!” with a wry smile on his face.
Several Chelsea fans believe the smile of the face of Cech is a hint that the deal is almost done.
“Asked @PetrCech if we’re signing Havertz… THE LAUGH SAYS IT ALL!! Welcome @kaihavertz29,” the supporter who asked the question wrote.
Another added: “That means it’s a yes.”
A third user said: “Haha, that cheeky smile. That’s what I needed after the final.”
While a further fan wrote: “He knows ! He concluded the deal…”
