Real Madrid Are Eyeing A Move For This Chelsea Forward: Should Ancelotti Move In For Him?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Marca claimed that Real Madrid are eyeing a move for Chelsea forward Kai Havertz. It has been mentioned that Los Blancos are hoping to bring the German attacker on board during the summer transfer window.

Havertz’s Inconsistent Campaign At Stamford Bridge

Havertz has endured a frustrating campaign at the West London club as he has struggled to be consistent for them in the final third. The German sensation has made 47 appearances for the Blues this season, scoring just nine goals and earning one assist across all fronts.

The 23-year-old has proven his worth at times based on his average of 2.0 shots, 1.1 key passes and 0.5 dribbles per game in the Premier League. He has even been accurate when distributing the ball in the opponent’s half, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 82.4% in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).

Havertz is under contract at Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2025. Thus, it won’t be easy for Los Blancos to get him on board ahead of the new campaign.

Should Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti Move In For Havertz?

Havertz can create space for himself to get a few strikes in at goal. He is a technically gifted footballer who is a decent dribbler with the ball. However, the German sensation has to find a way to improve his numbers in front of the opponent’s goal if he intends to taste success at the highest level.

Havertz has struggled to find confidence at Chelsea over the past ten months. Thus, the German attacker might welcome a change of scenery so that he can change his fortunes for the better in the future.

Real Madrid would be a great destination for the player as long as Carlo Ancelotti is willing to play him often in the coming seasons. Karim Benzema is facing an uncertain future at the Madrid club, so Havertz might even serve as a good replacement for the French striker if he can find some form next season. All in all, Los Blancos should consider moving in for the Chelsea striker during the summer transfer window.
