The amount of money Chelsea spent on new signing Kai Havertz was ‘ridiculous’ and ‘crazy’, Dimitar Berbatov has claimed.
The club ended months of transfer speculation last week when they officially brought the German midfielder to the club after months of negotiations with Leverkusen about a transfer deal.
He arrives at the club on a deal that is worth £71 million, while his wage packet at the club will make him one of the highest earners in the Premier League, not just at Stamford Bridge.
It is understood the 21-year-old is in line to make his full debut for the as we take on Brighton in their Premier League opener next Monday, but despite admitting he is a fantastic addition at Stamford Bridge, Man United legend Berbatov believes the club paid too much for the German.
“I think the amount of money spent on Kai Havertz was a little too much for my taste,” he told Betfair.
“It’s ridiculous, it’s too much money. Havertz is a great talent, and I have said.”
It is alot of money to pay for a player that still has alot to prove in the game, but at the end of the day, that is what clubs have to pay in todays game for talents like this man.
£71 million will not be alot of money in the coming seasons if the lad produces just like the club hope, he should repay that in shirt sales, trophies and goals, to the fee will pay for itself.
He will be worth every penny in the coming seasons, WATCH!
