Kai Havertz thrilled to complete Chelsea move

Kai Havertz thrilled to complete Chelsea move”

Chelsea have been the busiest club of the transfer window with Havertz, Malang Sarr, Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell and Timo Werner joining February signing Hakim Ziyech in moving to Stamford Bridge.

He told Chelsea's official site: "I am very happy and proud to be here".

Havertz's move eclipses Werner's short-lived record as Germany's most expensive footballer after he joined Chelsea for 53 million euros in June.

"Because of Havertz, his mate Werner can play on the wings".

Havertz started his journey at Leverkusen as an 11-year-old and made his senior debut at age 17 in October 2016.

Now, Chelsea finalized another massive transfer move by securing a deal reported to be worth £70 million ($91 million) to sign Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen. "Yeah, I am very happy to be here!" "We are delighted to be able to add his versatility and quality to the squad before the season begins". Though many heavyweights like Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Manchester United were interested in the young man, Chelsea landed him first. "He is a super player".

The Germany global has been linked with a number of Europe's biggest clubs following an impressive few seasons in the Bundesliga, though with the financial effects of the coronavirus pandemic rippling across the game, very few clubs have had the spending power to make a serious attempt to lure him.

The spending spree also signals that Russian billionaire owner Roman Abramovich is still very much invested in his club's fortunes, even if he no longer resides in London.

Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley will all be fighting for a place in manager Frank Lampard's starting XI with the new arrivals.

The 21-year-old also scored four goals and provided two assists in five Europa League matches, and he played in five Champions League games as well in 2019-20, according to WhoScored.
