Many Glasgow Rangers fans have been whipped into a frenzy by one particular transfer update, even though the player in question won’t be coming to Ibrox.
Sky Sports reported on Monday that Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz is pushing hard to have his prospective £70m move (plus add-ons) to Chelsea completed before the Bundesliga side face the ‘Gers in the second leg of their Europa League round of 16 clash on Thursday week.
As per Sky Sports, the 21-year-old is eager to get his move to Stamford Bridge over the line, with the transfer fee believed to be the only hold-up to a deal being finalised.

Can Rangers overcome Bayer Leverkusen in the second leg?
Unsurprisingly, these ‘Gers fans on Twitter are hoping that the midfielder’s proposed move to Chelsea will go through before Steven Gerrard’s side meet Leverkusen so that they won’t have to face Havertz:

If he’s not gone by the time we play them Kai should score a few own goals to send Leverkusen a message😂
