German is my first language, so believe me when I tell you those quotes are essentially correct.
Word for word translation would be along the lines of: “With Timo Werner & Kai Havertz, 2 Germans in 1 year, I think Chelsea might‘ve done well to get a hold of (them).“#Sane #CFC https://t.co/nhJ8podwie

According to certain reports, Kai Havertz has already agreed personal terms with Chelsea and his contract with the Blues until 2025 is already ready. However, the issue still remains about the player’s transfer fee. Bayer Leverkusen want around €80/90 million for their superstar and Chelsea are set to begin negotiations with the German side.
Chelsea have been very much active in the transfer window as they have already signed Timo Werner from RB Leipzig and Hakim Ziyech from Ajax. Adding Havertz will give the Blues’ forward line more threat as the German is versatile and can play in several positions both in midfield and attack.
