The Bundesliga seems to be the perfect shopping destination for Premier League clubs’ summer needs and Kai Havertz is a player many are chasing.
The German league has been boasting some incredible talent this season and plenty of English teams are in the race to sign one of their big names. Havertz has been listed amongst the likes of Jadon Sancho and Timo Werner who are heavily linked to a move to the Premier League.
Who is the better creative midfielder?
Bayer Leverkusen’s clinical playmaker has attracted attention from both Manchester United and Chelsea, who are seemingly in a two-horse race for his signature. Ex-midfielder Didi Hamann has given his take on the situation and feels London is the more suitable option for £90million-valued Havertz.
Speaking to Sky Sports Germany (via Sport Witness), the former Liverpool player has tipped Chelsea to be the team to clinch their man this summer.
“Perspective is important for a player, but Manchester [United] has been bobbing in a vacuum for years,” Hamann said. “On the other hand, if I look at Chelsea, they have a coach with Frank Lampard who did a great job for the club as a player – and I have the feeling that the Blues are growing again after a long time.”
Lampard has started something very exciting with the Blues and could be on the verge of taking a youthful team to success. His decision to give young talent like Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham the opportunity to shine on the big stage has paid in dividends. The two have tallied 19 goals and eight assists between them in the league this term (via Transfermarkt).
Chelsea’s history is certainly enough to pull young players in and see them sign long-term deals with the club. The promise of development and the potential to win silverware could be enough to see Havertz snub Man United for the Blues.
Lampard’s side have all but signed fellow Bundesliga star Werner in a shock swoop after his strong links to Liverpool. This could also be an attractive factor to lure the young German to England.
“If I think about where I see the clubs now, and in two or three years, the decision for Chelsea would be a relatively easy one for me as a player,” Hamann concluded.
The German is right in predicting big things to unfold for Chelsea, and Havertz could go hand-in-hand with the team’s success.
