The rumours of replacing Polish professional footballer, Robert Lewandowski at Bayern Munich has been played down by Chelsea attacking midfielder, Kai Havertz.
Naija News reports that Lewandowski left the Bundesliga side barely a month ago to join Spanish giants, Barcelona.
The 33-year-old, who now wears Barca’s number 9 shirt, penned a €50 million (£42m/$51m) transfer deal with the Catalans from Munich.
There have been speculations since then linking Havertz with a move to Bundesliga champions, Bayern Munich.
It was assumed in some quarters that Havertz will be a perfect replacement for Lewandowski at Munich.
Reacting to the speculations, however, the 23-year-old Germany international said he was not aware of any deal.
Harvertz categorically ruled out any possibility of leaving Chelsea this summer.
According to him, he also heard of the rumours on Instagram.
“I heard about it on Instagram (laughs). I cannot say anything about it – there was nothing at all. There were no talks,” Havertz reportedly told reporters.
Naija News recalls that Havertz joined Chelsea from Bayer Leverkusen for £72 million in 2020.
He penned a five-year deal to play for the Blues.
‘Why Falconets Slept On Bare Floors, Chairs At Istanbul Airport’ – NFF Secretary
The General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation, Mohammed Sanusi has debunked reports that the Falconets were stranded at the Istanbul airport, Turkey.
Naija News reports that earlier on Wednesday morning, photos of the Falconets sleeping on bare floors and chairs made the rounds online, which generated outrage.
However, Sanusi during an interview with PUNCH said the girls missed their connecting flight from Istanbul, Turkey to Nigeria.
He further described the reports as mischievous and misleading, saying the airline was at fault.
Sanusi added that the Falconets had finally boarded a flight to Abuja.
He said: “The Falconets were not stranded in Turkey; to say the girls were stranded is a mischievous statement. It’s the fault of the airline.
“By the time they arrived in Istanbul, the connecting Turkish Airline flight that was supposed to convey them from Turkey to Abuja had left and the Falconets had to wait for the next flight.”
The Falconets won all their group stage matches in Costa Rica but lost to The Netherlands 2-0 in the quarter-finals to exit the tournament.
