Chelsea new signing Kai Havertz says he always dreamt of playing for the Premiership side.
The German landed at Stamford Bridge in a £62million deal from Bundesliga Bayern Leverkusen.
Havertz was one of Chelsea’s transfer targets all through the summer with the English giants securing him at the said fee.
He however reveals it has always been his dream to play at the English Premier League side and elated to have realized that dream.
“I watched many games of him as a kid.
“He was also like the way I play as a midfielder — to go in the box, score goals and make assists.
“I loved him as a player. I was dreaming as a kid to play in the Premier League and for Chelsea as well.
“I’ve always dreamed of playing in a league like that and that dream came true very early.
”Of course it’s a big price tag but I think in football today it is normal to pay these prices.
“So for me I will not put a lot of pressure on myself because I think I’m not doing the worst things in the past – that’s why the price tag was high.
“I am trying to focus on football and trying to play my best football here in Chelsea and not put pressure on myself.
“I’m just playing football, I love to play football.
“That’s why I’m here. I’ll try my best.”
The 21-year-old made his debut against Brighton & Hove Albion and in contention to play in this weekend’s League match against Liverpool.
