Even as Chelsea fans wait with bated breath for the potential signing of Kai Havertz, Bayer Leverkusen manager Peter Bosz on Monday, August 10 took to calm some Blues’ nerves in a hilarious fashion.
Bosz, in a press conference after his side was bundled out of the Champions League by Inter Milan, seemed to suggest the talented Havertz had signed for a different club.
The 21-year old was on target for Leverkusen, but his goal was not enough to mount a win for the German outfit and it is highly likely he might have played the last game for the club.
And soon after the game, the Leverkusen manager ruthlessly trolled Chelsea by blatantly joking, "Yes, I can exclusively announce he'll play for Heracles Almelo."

Notably, Bosz used to manage the Dutch size Heracles, who also took to social media to run away with the joke.
Through their Twitter, Heracles shared a hilarious image of Havertz in their home kit as they jokingly announced they had signed him.
Of course the whole thing as purely for banter purposes, but it was quite interesting to see the two parties wind up Chelsea fans.
As far as Havertz’s transfer is concerned, Leverkusen remain adamant they will not lose the 21-year old for a cut price.
"We know of the interest of a couple of clubs, especially Chelsea, but for us, the situation is quite simple - he has a two-year contract, if anyone wants him on our terms, fine, otherwise he stays here another year and we are happy," the club’s sporting director Rudi Voller recently warned potential bidders.
