‘Havertz paying the price for £70m transfer fee’ – Chelsea signing needs time, says Melchiot

 The former Blues defender admits that added pressure has been placed on a promising playmaker as he arrived in England as part of a big-money deal

Kai Havertz is finding out the hard way that a £70 million ($95m) price tag was always going to weigh heavy on his shoulders, says former Chelsea defender Mario Melchiot.

The Blues won the race for a much sought-after signature during the summer transfer window, with a big-money agreement put in place with Bayer Leverkusen.

With Havertz’s star very much on the rise, Frank Lampard was considered to have acquired himself a player that could thrive on a Premier League stage.
