Kai Havertz has officially parted ways with Chelsea after spending three seasons at Stamford Bridge, completing a transfer to London rivals Arsenal.
Arsenal successfully secured the signing of the German forward for a fee of £65 million.
The Gunners have high hopes that the talented forward can be the missing piece needed to strengthen their squad.
In a heartfelt letter addressed to Chelsea fans, Havertz reflected on his time at the club and took the opportunity to apologize for the leaked video that caused controversy.
Expressing gratitude to the fans, he acknowledged their unwavering support and emphasized the joy of achieving a shared dream: winning the Champions League.
Despite his departure, Havertz will always hold a special place in Chelsea’s history for his crucial goals in the 2021 Champions League final and the 2021 FIFA Club World Cup final.
He also contributed to the team’s success by lifting the UEFA Super Cup after a victory over Villarreal in Belfast.
Joining Chelsea in the summer of 2020 from Bayer Leverkusen, Havertz quickly established himself as a rising star in European football.
After an initial period of adaptation, he became a key figure in the Chelsea attack, scoring nine goals in his first campaign and securing a Champions League title with his memorable strike against Manchester City in Porto.
I would have preferred for you to hear my thoughts on leaving Chelsea first from myself before my thoughts on me joining my new team. This isn’t my style and it upsets me that you had to hear of it in this way.
I write this letter with a heavy heart to all… pic.twitter.com/Irnppj9kSE
