According to German journalist Raimund Hinko, Kai Havertz already regrets joining Chelsea.

The German international has struggled since he joined Chelsea from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer.

Hinko said: “Kai Havertz, even if he doesn’t say it out loud, will have already cursed a hundred times that he moved from Leverkusen to the midfield bores of Chelsea, following the lure of money.

“Everything went to pieces. No celebrating Christmas, far away from his family, trapped on the island, not even strumming a few contemplative songs on his piano.

“Instead, watching from the draughty bench against bottom-of-the-table Arsenal in a 3-1 defeat. Then substituted for the last quarter of an hour.

“A kind of mercy killing. The maximum punishment for such a great talent.

“Havertz will have kicked himself often enough for not returning Bayern’s interest more vehemently as long as coach Hansi Flick was still interested in him.”
