That deal has taken up a significant portion of their funds for incomings this summer, which has led to the club denying reports of a move for Havertz, which will only become possible if extra money is made through outgoing transfers.
“I am sure that after Leroy Sane there will be no major transfers this year,’ Hoeness told German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine.
“This has nothing to do with the quality of Havertz. We all think he is a very, very good player.
“But in the coronavirus period after a transfer of almost €50m, one of €70-80m or more, I can’t imagine making unless we secure counter-financing through player sales.”
Despite already adding major attacking firepower in the form of Hakim Ziyech of Ajax and Timo Werner of RB Leipzig, Frank Lampard is eager to add even more quality to his team in forward areas.
Chelsea are also looking to recruit another left-back, but have been put off by Leicester City’s £80m valuation of Ben Chilwell, which could lead to them turning attention to Sergio Reguilon of Real Madrid.
