German Star Could Bank Up To R163m After Chelsea Transfer

Chelsea's record signing Kai Havertz is reportedly set for a significant pay day following his move to England from Bayer Leverkusen.

German magazine Sport Bild has reported that a clause was included during transfer negotiations that would allow him to bank 10% of the transfer fee, which was reported to be £75 million (R1.6 billion).

Bayer Leverkusen had initially wanted £90 million (R1.9 billion) outright, but Chelsea negotiated more add-ons to get to a lower initial fee, meaning that both the player and club would not get as much as they may have first expected.

If Havertz banked 10% of the £75 million, he would get a bonus of £7.5 million (R163 million). However, it is also being claimed that the midfielder had to forfeit a large chunk of the bonus in order to speed up the move, although he would still pocket a decent sum.

The Germany star has already joined up with the Blues as their pre-season preparations continue, and could be in line to make his Chelsea debut next week.

Frank Lampard's side will get their Premier League season underway against Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday, 14 September.
