Kai Havertz reveals why he snubbed Bayern Munich to join Chelsea

Kai Havertz wants to replicate Frank Lampard’s career at Chelsea Football Club.

The German playmaker made his move to Stamford Bridge from Bayer Leverkusen this September in a deal worth £71 million.

He was one of the exciting young prospects in Bundesliga and German champions Bayern Munich were interested in the 21-year old midfielder.

But then he chose to join Frank Lampard’s side as he was persuaded with the club’s vision and plans to win the Premier League with a young attacking side.

‘It was important to me to have a club with a vision,’ Havertz told Sport Bild.

‘An exciting change is taking place. We are a young team with many great players. We think offensively.

‘We want to build something up here and attack. That motivates me a lot. And then it is a title with Chelsea is worth a lot more.’

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was also a key factor in his decision to join the Blues.

‘I was always impressed with his scoring threat,’ said Havertz.

‘I found that outstanding for a midfielder. That’s what I want to measure myself against. ‘The fact that he was so successful and at the same time so personable impresses me.’

‘Well, that’s the way the football market works. I can’t help it. That’s why I don’t put any emphasis on it,’ said Havertz.

‘I try to play football well. I don’t have my transfer fee in my head when I go out on to the pitch.’
