Bayer Leverkusen boss Rudi Völler has made it clear that Kai Havertz will definitely stay beyond the summer, and Rummenigge says that is what he has been told as well.
"A few weeks ago, I had a conversation with Rudi Völler out of interest. I played with him in the national team for years, we have super relationship. I asked Rudi about Bayer Leverkusen's plans with Kai Havertz," Rummenigge told Sport Bild and added:
"He told me that there is an agreement at Leverkusen with the chairman of the supervisory board, Mr. Werner Wenning, that the player will definitely play for Leverkusen next season.
"I don't know if Kai Havertz will play in Munich one day. I'm not a friend of anticipating things when there are twelve months in between. That's not so easy to manage. Kai Havertz is a good player, we don't need to talk about that. But he has a contract until 2022," Rummenigge said.
When asked about Leroy Sané, the Bayern boss once again underlined that it's up to the Manchester City winger to decide if he wants to come to Allianz Arena.
"There are always three parties involved in a transfer. First, the player has to decide where he sees his future," he said.
The situation is different when it comes to Timo Werner. If Bayern decide that they want to sign the striker, Rummenigge will approach RB Leipzig.
"Leipzig don't want to let Timo Werner go on a free transfer in 2020. I understand that. My relationship with Leipzig's Oliver Mintzlaff is good. I said to him seven or eight weeks ago that if we have a serious interest in Timo Werner, I'll approach him. I'll stick to that," Rummenigge said.
