Hamann urges Havertz to join Chelsea over ‘vacuum’ of Man Utd


Liverpool legend Dietmar Hamann insists Kai Havertz should opt for a move to Chelsea over Manchester United if he moves to the Premier League.

The 20-year-old is set to leave Bayer Leverkusen in the summer, with Chelsea rumoured to be the English favourites to sign him.

Havertz has reportedly admitted he can “see himself playing” at Chelsea, though Manchester United could provide competition to land the German international.

Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are also said to be interested in the £75million playmaker.

Hamann believes that if Havertz does opt for the Premier League, Chelsea are a more attractive proposition than United.

He told Sky Germany: “United has lost its appeal in recent years. They have been the measure of things for many years, they are still the largest club in England, but they have major internal problems.

“If there was a player on the market in the past, Manchester United was the first point of contact for years. I believe that is no longer the case today.

“When a player like Kai Havertz changes clubs and signs somewhere for five years, the long-term perspective is more important than participating in the Champions League next season.



“The player may have to make the decision in the next few weeks and cannot wait until the season in England, which runs until the end of July or beginning of August, is over. Perspective is important for a player, but Manchester has been in a vacuum for years.

“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.

“For the first time in a long time, you have a team with which the fans can really identify. If a Timo Werner or possibly a Kai Havertz were to be added, it would be an incredibly exciting and interesting story.

“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.”
