- Bayer Leverkusen were crushed 4-2 in the DFB Pokal final by Bayern Munich
- Kai Havertz came on the score sheet, but it could be his last goal for the club
- As a Chelsea circle, the 21-year-old wants to discuss his future with Bayer chefs
- Bayern Munich rules out a step and Real Madrid reportedly hesitates
Bayer Leverkusen’s chiefs will fear their next meeting with lead man Kai Havertz, with the youngster eager to discuss his future amid interest from Chelsea.
The 21-year-old’s injury time penalty turned out to be just a consolation, as Bayern Munich raced to the glory of DFL Pokal over Leverkusen on Saturday with a 4-2 win in Berlin on Saturday.
The BayArena squad failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League via the Bundesliga after finishing fifth, making their Europa League triumph their only hope of reaching UEFA’s main league in 2020-21.

Since qualifying for the Champions League is unlikely, the move from Havertz to Chelsea seems likely
Interest in Havertz has grown tremendously over the years, resulting in strong ties to Chelsea this summer, with the midfielder asking for a meeting to discuss his future with Leverkusen bosses, according to Bild.
The Blues have emerged as strong favorites to land the star this summer, and Bild also reports that Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are cooling their hunt for Havertz this season.
Frank Lampard has already secured the arrival of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner for a combined £ 81m this summer, a seemingly excellent thing before many of the West Londoners’ rivals have entered the market at all.

The young German has teased Blues fans during the transfer because he likes a tweet that read ‘announce Havertz’ on Twitter.
In addition to Werner, Chelsea is building a team with an increasing Bundesliga flavor, with Antonio Rudiger, Christian Pulisic and Andreas Christensen all enjoying spells in Germany.
