German legend has Chelsea message for brilliant £87 million midfielder Havertz
Michael Ballack has sent a transfer message to Chelsea target Kai Havertz ahead of the summer window.
The season is on hold right now, as the coronavirus is taking over the world, but that has not stopped all the speculation in the media about possible signings that Frank Lampard could make at the end of the season.
Lampard may have one of the most exciting and creative sides in the Premier League right now, but he will need to spend some money in the next couple of windows to improve the side in certain areas, especially with the likes of Willian and Pedro seemingly on their way out of the club.
And according to recent reports on the ATHLETIC, we are now interested in trying to acquire the services of Havertz, who is easily regarded as one of the finest talents in the game and tipped to be one of the very best players around.
Havertz has become one of the most sought after players in the game, as he has scored 20 goals and provided four assists in all competition this season, meaning that this will be his most productive campaign to date.
It is believed that he will cost less that that £100 million price tag and we will only need to pay around £87 million to complete a possible transfer deal, a fee that will not be dropped by the German side.
But Ballack, who won the Premier League title and two FA Cup trophies during his four seasons at Chelsea, believes the environment for Havertz to develop at Leverkusen is ‘perfect’.
‘Players with his quality are in demand everywhere. But I think he’s in good hands in Leverkusen,’ Ballack told SportBild.
‘The conditions there are perfect for young top players and their development.
‘Bayer play attractive football and their training facilities are very good.
‘Leverkusen also offer a cautious environment, and as a player you can make mistakes without being the focus of criticism. You should appreciate that.
‘Of course a player like Kai Havertz has to play in the Champions League, so it would be important for Leverkusen to qualify for it.’
