All clubs have turned off Negotiations on Kai Havertz and only Chelsea can change this; Here’s why.
Real Madrid wanted Kai Havertz this summer but they are not even prepared to pay the heavy fee attached to him and this has halted the negotiations by the Spanish giants pending when Chelsea changes their mind.
Real Madrid have no intention to pay big fee for Kai Havertz. He’s appreciated by Ancelotti but no plans to spend €60m plus add-ons requested by Chelsea. ⚪️ #RealMadrid

Until then it’s a phoney war, and according to Fabrizio Romano’s latest update we shouldn’t expect too much movement soon. He says that Madrid “have no intention to pay big fee” and that negotiations are “currently off.”
That situation will only chance if Havertz’s “price tag will be lower later in the window.” That’s certainly a possibility. If Chelsea decide that there is no other interest in the German international and they’d rather sell him than let him get towards the end of his contract, then there’s a good chance they accept less than the steep sums they’re asking for now.
Of course in the interim Madrid may move for another alternative and end their interest entirely. It’s going to be an interesting few weeks of cat and mouse.
