Chelsea midfielder Kai Havertz has spoken out on his summer move to Chelsea amid interest from Manchester United.

Reports according to MEN Sport revealed that the German was open to moving to Old Trafford back in June, but eventually joined the Blues as they were more willing to pay his huge transfer fee and was also excited with their vision.

Havertz revealed his reasons for joining Chelsea over United as he spoke to Sport Bild:

“To me, it was important to have a club with a vision

“We want to build something here and attack. This motivates me. And then, a title with Chelsea is just worth more.

“A transfer like this doesn’t happen overnight. I had enough to go through all options and things which are important to me.

“I was watching a lot of Premier League on TV anyhow and knew Chelsea really well.”
