DONE DEAL: Chelsea completes Kai Havertz transfer

Chelsea have completed the signing of Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz.

Havertz for a cut price £70million after playing hardball with Bayer Leverkusen.

The Bundesliga side were seeking a British record £90m fee for the 21-year-old attacking midfielder.

Havertz left Germany’s training camp to have a medical today before putting pen-to-paper on a contract believed to be worth £310,000-a-week.

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

“For me it is a dream come true to play in a big club like Chelsea and I can’t wait to meet all the players and the trainers. Yeah, I am very happy to be here!”

Havertz joins Timo Werner, Malang Sarr, Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva as new summer recruits at Stamford Bridge.

Hakim Ziyech also joined up with his new team-mates after signing a contract in February.

Chelsea’s transfer supremo Marina Granovskaia, who finalises the deals and got an extra £13m for Eden Hazard’s move, said of the latest arrival: “Kai is one of the best players of his age in world football, so we are very happy that his future lies at Chelsea.

“He has proven pedigree in one of the best leagues in Europe, he plays for the German national side and he is an exciting, dynamic talent.

“We are delighted to be able to add his versatility and quality to the squad before the season begins.”
