After months of speculation, the Kai Havertz to Chelsea saga is drawing to a close. A total agreement was reached several days ago, and now the player has already completed his medical in London, according to Christian Falk. Now, only the official announcement remains.
Havertz Completes Chelsea Medical
A Generational Talent
There are many hot young players in Europe, but Havertz looks to be among the best. At just 21, he has scored a very impressive 38 goals in the past two seasons, along with 15 assists.
Only Jadon Sancho boasts similar stats for a young player in the Bundesliga, which is why the two have been the biggest talking points of the transfer market. But Sancho is yet to come close to a Manchester United move, while Chelsea have got their man.
It is not unrealistic to suggest that Havertz could end his career as a Ballon d’Or winner, that’s how good he is. With the Messi-Ronaldo era of dominance drawing to a close, he could be one of the players to carry the torch of greatness.
His skill, vision, finishing, and versatility make him the talented player he is, and he will only get better at Stamford Bridge. Manager Frank Lampard has signed a gem, both for the present and the future.
Another Young Attacking Gem at Chelsea
When you think about all the attacking talent at Lampard’s disposal, it will be a surprise if they don’t at least challenge for the title. Not just next season, but in the next five seasons. Maybe even in the next ten years.
The young, attacking core Lampard has built is truly exceptional, and they have no ceiling to what they can achieve. Christian Pulisic will likely end up being the best American to ever play the game, and he’s just 21.
Timo Werner is 24, and the sheer amount of goal contributions he has made for RB Leipzig show what a world-class finisher he really is. Mason Mount, 20, a player very reminiscent of Lampard himself, is being coached by his idol.
He won’t be the star at Chelsea like he was at Bayer Leverkusen; the club have too many quality players, and that’s a good thing. Having just one star in a team can create a burden on that player to perform. In Chelsea’s case, they have a plethora of stars to take to the limelight.
That’s more players to rely on for individual brilliance, more players to pick up their teammates’ slack, and most importantly, more cohesion in the team. Every player will feel like they’re an important contributor because they are an important contributor.
Lampard will look to mould Havertz into this young and exciting side, and many of these players could be running the show at Stamford Bridge for the next decade.
Havertz will soon be one of them; it’s just a matter of time. For now, he just needs to focus on adapting to his new club and his new role with the official announcement imminent.
