Chelsea’s record signing Romelu Lukaku has revealed he encouraged Kai Havertz to join Chelsea last summer.
Before his move to Chelsea, the German midfielder was also strongly linked with Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
According to Lukaku, he convinced the German international to join Chelsea following a meeting between Bayer Leverkusen and Inter Milan in the Europa League. Weeks later, Havertz was announced as a Chelsea player.
“I spoke to Kai Havertz when we played in the Europa League together and I told him to go to Chelsea, I don’t know if he remembers that conversation,” Lukaku said.
Lukaku would be happy Havertz heeded his advice as both are now teammates at Chelsea.
