The new SuperChelsea scares

The confirmed signing of Havertz, plus the previous ones of Thiago Silva, Ziyech or Werner, give the 'blues' a squad with which to opt for everything.

The arrival of Kai Havertz, one of the most sought-after talents in Europe - and who the pandemic surely left without his dream of playing for Real Madrid - makes Chelsea the most exciting team at the top of the Premier League. Liverpool and Manchester City are still the titans to beat, and the blues are still a step below with a very talented but also young group, but Abramovich's decision to take out the checkbook again makes the London team one of the greats attractive for the next season.

Havertz was officially announced yesterday and the figures that are valued for his transfer are between 80 and 100 million euros, depending on the goals he achieves in his new club. It is the jewel in the crown, the talent that they trust Lampard to bring out the brightest. A technician who may have some very suggestive new names - such as Ziyech, Werner, Chilwell or Thiago Silva - but also others who will have to face their confirmation season - such as Mount, Abraham or Hudson-Odoi.

Havertz, at 21, left the German national team concentration in Stuttgart yesterday morning to undergo the medical examination in London, and, at about 9:00 p.m., he appeared on the London club's website. "I am very happy and proud to be here. For me it is a dream come true to play for a great club like Chelsea and I can't wait to meet the players and coaches," he already commented as a blue player.

His performance in recent times was also outstanding, as he managed to score seven goals in the nine games after the resumption of the pandemic in the Premier. Although his greatest virtue is not that of a scorer, last season with Bayer Leverkusen he scored 18 goals in 45 games.

In the bedroom, Chelsea, which has spent around 200 million euros counting on the Havertz operation, still has to hire a goalkeeper who can compete with Kepa, with whom they are not entirely satisfied. The chosen one seems to be Edouard Mendy, a 28-year-old Rennes goalkeeper for whom the French team is asking about 35 million euros.
