Spanish giants Real are the latest to register an interest in Bayer Leverkusen star Havertz, who is regarded as Germany’s best young talent since Michael Ballack.

But Chelsea are optimistic they can win through with their bid of around £70m, as revealed exclusively by SunSport on Tuesday.

Bayern Munich had for a long time seemed destined to capture the services of playmaker Havertz, 20, at the end of the season.

But a host of Premier League clubs then made their interest known, with Manchester United and Liverpool joining Chelsea in the market.

Now Real have also shown their hand, but SunSport understands it is the chance to move to England which appeals most to Havertz at this stage.

Leverkusen have insisted they do not want to sell their prized-asset, but with some of Europe’s biggest clubs circling they know they are unlikely to keep hold of the player.

And Chelsea’s strong move over the last few days has seen them jump to the head of the queue of bidders, as they look to also complete the signing of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig in the coming weeks.

Havertz himself has preferred to keep his counsel while he sees out the remainder of the Bundesliga campaign, but is well aware of all the clubs keen on his services.

And there is a belief he is most interested by the chance to play in England ahead of staying in Germany, although interest from Real will test that resolve.
