Kai Havertz will be signing Arsenal instead of Real Madrid. According to journalist Nizaar Kinsella, despite playing for Chelsea and being on the verge of joining Arsenal, Kai Havertz has always fantasized about moving to Real Madrid. While playing for Bayer Leverkusen, the German had expressed a desire in switching to the Spanish team, but the club lacked the resources necessary to recruit him because of the pandemic.
Although the formal announcement of Havertz’s transfer from Chelsea to Arsenal has not yet been made, information about his interview with the club was leaked via their club app. The player’s paperwork has been finalized by the North London team.
Nizaar said that Havertz had always wanted to move to Real Madrid while speaking on the InsideArsenal podcast. He continued by saying that the Germans could not have moved to Los Blancos due to the conditions.
He stated: “He always had Real Madrid on his wish list; I assumed Madrid would arrive this summer. Madrid didn’t have any money during the pandemic, so Chelsea was recommended to him. He was snatched away from Real Madrid, who had been preparing to sign him for a while, but the transaction never happened; Chelsea and Arsenal, however, did.”
This summer, Real Madrid was interested in acquiring Kai Havertz, but Chelsea outbid them.
A pundit thinks Arsenal is saying a lot by signing a Chelsea star:
Ally McCoist, a football analyst, has stated that he is thrilled about Kai Havertz’s transfer to Arsenal. The German, in his opinion, was not utilized to his full potential at Chelsea and will be thrilled to play his favorite position at the Emirates.
He told talkSPORT: “I will have him. He has been playing out of position, without a doubt; he was never a center-forward, as I am telling you right now. I paid close attention to him during a few of the games I saw because, unlike most center-forwards, he never stops moving toward the ball. However, I genuinely believe he is a high performer as a number 10 or a midfielder.”
He added: “He’s not in any way my go-to center-forward, in my opinion. The fact that the clubs you listed are supporting him does not surprise me. He thinks more strategically and is effectively a number 10. He receives the ball on the half-turn and is constantly open to receiving it. Although he can score goals, he is not a true center-forward. He is someone I genuinely like.”
With add-ons, Kai Havertz’s projected £65 million transfer cost to Arsenal might increase to £70 million.
