Bayer Leverkusen’s highlight Kai Havertz has been one of the main players in the world this season. In addition, he is considered one of the most promising athletes in world football nowadays.
With the young German player’s great performance on the pitch, there are a lot of rumors over an English Premier League move. However, former Bayer Leverkusen legend and striker, Dimitar Berbatov advised the German to absolutely rule out a move to the Premier League.
In other words, the Bulgarian believes that the English League will be somehow a consequence for him.
In an interview with the betting platform ‘Betfair’, Berbatov believes that this is not the ideal moment for Kai Havertz to leave Bayer Leverkusen. In addition, the former player believes that a move to the Premier League will be a natural consequence.
”Havertz needs to keep on playing, to be on the field. There is a lot of talk about him playing for Liverpool or Chelsea, but I think he needs to be careful. He needs to stay focused on his game. I want to see him in the Premier League one day, but not now, ”he said.
That’s one good advice, as, despite Havertz’s quality, he would need to adapt himself to the Premier League way, and that would certainly take some time.
Havertz had his debut season back in 2018. In the current season, the German played 34 games wearing the Bayer Leverkusen shirt, and scored 14 goals with 8 assists.
The athlete has stood out for his offensive momentum and the quality of his pass. According to the ‘Transfermarkt’ portal, the 20-year-old is valued at 81 million euros. In this way, the German has attracted the attention of the main European clubs, and it will be hard for Leverkusen to make him stay at the club, but maybe Berbatov is right, and Havertz himself should step up and make his decision based on his heart and not purely on money. The right moment for a Premier League move will arrive for him.
