Chelsea star Kai Havertz has delivered his verdict on recent speculation linking him with a summer move away from Chelsea.
After revealing his ‘special’ relationship with donkeys, the 23-year-old commented on rumours of his potential departure following Thomas Tuchel’s sacking.
“I still have a two-year contract – I don’t have to move every 2-3 years,” Haverz told Bild, as relayed by Fabrizio Romano.
“My girlfriend and I feel very comfortable in London. I love the club, Chelsea – people and fans.
Although he has blown hot and cold this season, like the whole Chelsea squad, it seems Havertz is more than happy to see out his lucrative contract at Stamford Bridge.
Besides his famous winner in the 2020/21 Champions League final against Manchester City, there’s a feeling the German forward has not lived up to his massive £71 million price tag.
As the second-most expensive signing in the Blues’ history, Havertz was expected to become a leader of a new era. But the issues with inconsistent performances have stood in the way of his progress.
Tuchel’s recent switch to Bayern Munich has sparked a series of rumours linking Havertz with a return to his homeland, given the close relationship between the pair.
The Bavarians’ genuine interest in the left-footed forward during his time at Bayer Leverkusen has only poured more gasoline on the fire.
However, Havertz rubbished such talks, admitting he has cut communication with the Allianz Arena chiefs since joining Chelsea.
“I never spoke to Bayern directors after my move to Chelsea,” he added.
Despite Havertz’s see-saw form, he remains the most prolific Chelsea player in the Premier League this season with seven goals.
On top of his scoring exploits in the domestic championship, he was decisive as the Blues ousted Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League round of 16.
Havertz’s relatively modest goals tally still stands out in west London, with Raheem Sterling’s haul of goals placing him second in the club’s scoring charts.
