Former Manchester United striker Berbatov questions Chelsea Kai Havertz's 'crazy' price tag: 'It’s ridiculous, and too much

Chelsea splashed €80m on Havertz's move from Bayer Leverkusen last week.

The ex-Bayer striker Berbatov doesn't think the youngster costs that fee despite being an extremely talented player.

“I think the amount of money spent on Kai Havertz was a little too much for my taste,” former Bayer Leverkusen, Tottenham and Man United striker Dimitar Berbatov told Betfair.

“It’s ridiculous, it’s too much money. Havertz is a great talent, and I have said that in the past, I am a big fan of his and with my Leverkusen connection I was keeping a keen eye on him every week, but still the money that they have paid is crazy.

“He’s a great signing for the team, along with Timo Werner, and they certainly have the talent to challenge for the title next season, but the test is going to be a big one for them.

“His vision of the game, his positioning, that pass in the final third he can deliver, his finishing and his intelligence are all things that we will see from him in a Chelsea shirt.

“From what I was hearing at Leverkusen, he really wanted to make that next step in his career and that shows confidence, he’s telling people he wants to move forward at that early age, and especially with moving to England, one of the best leagues in the world with the best players.”

The German's move from Leverkusen cost the Blues €80m. The 21-year-old completed his transfer to the Bridge last week and could debut for Frank Lampard's side in Monday's clash with Brighton. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
