Man like Kai

By winning the Champions League with Chelsea, Kai Havertz has become the most expensive player in club history.

He was already up there near the top with Kepa Arrizabalaga, but with the bonuses stipulated in the transaction last summer with Bayer Leverkusen, Havertz is now top of the charts.

Worth it.

€80m+ repaid.

Winning goal in the Champions League final. At age 21.

He’s only just getting started.

Chelsea are only just getting started.

And a perfect response to an interviewer asking that silly question about his price. “I don’t give a [FUN] about that; we just won the [FUNNING] Champions League.”

What a night! What a season! What a team!

And in case you missed it, or you want to replay it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again, here’s Havertz winning it all for Chelsea, just before half-time, finishing with customary aplomb a fantastic through-ball from Mason Mount.
