Dutch club, Heracles Almelo, has ‘unveiled’ Kai Havertz as their player.
On Monday night, Bayer Leverkusen manager, Peter Bosz joked that Havertz will be joining his former team this summer.
Bosz, speaking after their 2-1 defeat to Inter Milan in the Europa League, said: “Yes, I can exclusively announce he’ll play for [Dutch outfit] Heracles Almelo.”
His former employers also took the opportunity to get involved in the prank, posting a mock-up image of Havertz in their colours on their social media page, writing ‘Welkom Kai’ with the hashtag #AnnounceHavertz.
The 21-year-old midfielder has been widely tipped for a £90million move to Chelsea.
It is believed he has agreed a five-year deal with the Blues.
However, both clubs are yet to agree on a fee for Havertz.
