CHELSEA star Kai Havertz has explained his decision to snub Real Madrid – explaining that a title with the Blues would be ‘worth more’.
The highly-rated German star was strongly linked to the huge Spanish club among others, and surprised some onlookers when he joined Chelsea for a whopping £71million fee.

He has since enjoyed a decent start to life in London, and revealed how much success at Stamford Bridge would mean to him.
He told Sport Bild: “A transfer like mine doesn’t happen overnight.
“I had to think about all the options and the things which are important to me.
“I watched the Premier League on TV a lot and I know Chelsea very well.
“A title with Chelsea is worth more. It was important for me to choose a club with vision.
“We’re a young team with many great players who think ambitiously; we want to build something here and attack, that is a great motivation for me.”
Havertz’s encouraging start to the season has been temporarily halted after a positive Covid-19 test saw him ruled out of Chelsea’s final two games before the international break.
