Bayer Leverkusen failed to qualify for the Champions League despite a 1-0 win over Mainz as the Bundesliga season came to a close.
Kevin Volland handed the German side victory but Leverkusen had to settle for fifth place as RB Leipzig defeated Augsburg and Borussia Mönchengladbach earned victory over Hertha Berlin.
Could this have impacted the future of Kai Havertz? Reports suggested that Leverkusen had been asking for a fee in the region of £90m but their failure to qualify for Europe’s premiere competition could see the figure drop closer to Chelsea’s £70m valuation.

However, speaking after the clash, Bayer Leverkusen boss Peter Bosz seemed unconcerned about the prospect of Havertz departing
Bosz said: “I don’t feel that he is thinking too much about transferring.
“I certainly don’t have the impression that this will be his last game for the club. He is still under contract with us and I have to assume that he will be with us next season too.
“That will include the German Cup final next month and the next Europa League game against Rangers in August.
“Of course, that’s all dependent on nothing happening before then.”
