[Bayer Leverkusen’s sporting director Rudi Voller on Bayern Munich] The gap with Bayern is too big to ever close again. It is impossible to organise your scouting department in a way that’s good enough to make Bayern even worry. They are on a completely different level. Leverkusen tried to keep up with Bayern in the 2000s, but we eventually reached our natural limits. We had to let go

[Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller has confirmed Bayern Munich enquired about signing Kai Havertz this summer] It is no secret that there were a few phone calls and great interest. I then spoke directly and completely friendly with Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. [He] totally understood that we do not [want to sell]. Bayern were not the only club that asked us about Kai Havertz

Let me put it this way: I’m always happy when I see an artist like Kai Havertz playing, preferably with us. If that’s not the case one day. There you can follow all the top European leagues

[Leon Bailey then netted the winner on his left foot after his pace saw him easily get past Javi Martinez, redeeming himself in Voller’s eyes for his blunder earlier in the month] In the last few weeks it had become quiet around him after his injury and the red card. Now he has returned with two great counterattacks. He has already shown that he can do this with his wonderful shooting technique

[Rudi Voller has suggested that the club will evaluate the future of young star Kai Havertz this summer] I am glad that we still held [on to Kai Havertz] this year. We’ll see how it looks in summer. He still has a contract until 2022 - these are, of course, the classic facts. There was already interest in the summer, but we told him that it would be good for him to stay with us for another year. And that was the right decision

[Bayer Leverkusen have signed Charles Aranguiz to a new contract which will keep the Chile international at the club until 2023] We’ve had a lot of good discussions with Charles over recent weeks and his desire to stay absolutely coincides with what we want. Charles is a really important player for our team. The fact we have again been able to agree a long-term contract underlines the full conviction of everybody involved and mutual confidence

[Florian Wirtz: Bundesliga’s new teen star that Liverpool & Bayern missed out on] We showed Florian in our talks that, from a sporting perspective, he would benefit from being here. In the past we have given many young players such as Kai Havertz, Julian Brandt and Benjamin Henrichs the chance to play early on, and even play in the Champions League

[Bayer Leverkusen managing director Rudi Voller believes Kai Havertz can go on to play for one of the world’s elite clubs] I’m honest, I always have such a small hope that we can and will keep him here for another year. It doesn’t change the fact that he’s already a world-class player anyway, that’s what he was before. Now the attention is even more on him. He will switch to an absolute world-class club at some point

[While talk continues to surround Havertz, Leverkusen sporting director Voller said the Bundesliga side were hoping to hold onto their star] We haven’t given up hope that he’ll stay with us. We try to give him every possibility that he can call up his qualities. He made that outstanding in the second half of the season

[Kai Havertz: Playmaker linked with Chelsea ‘can leave Leverkusen this summer’] We have an agreement - if it fits, he can go this summer. As of now, he is a player of ours. We have our ideas, we know what he can do. I personally hope he stays one more year. Of course, you can’t force anyone. Havertz knows what he owes to his colleagues, the fans and the club
