Ancelotti Believes Chelsea Striker Is The Perfect Player For Real Madrid

Transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano has offered an update on Real Madrid’s pursuit of Kai Havertz, suggesting that the club’s desire to sign the Chelsea playmaker is not reliant on the fate of Karim Benzema.

The veteran forward has been reportedly considering a move away from Santiago Bernabeu after receiving a lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia. Real Madrid, though, have not given up on him just yet and want to keep him at the club at all costs.

At the same time, the Spanish giants are determined to sign Havertz ahead of the new season. The Chelsea star has emerged as the most latest target for the club as they look to reinforce their creative options following the departure of Marco Asensio.

Fabrizio Romano (h/t Madrid Xtra) claims Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti views Havertz as the ideal player for the club, both on and off the pitch.

This comes despite the fact that the German international has been largely branded as a flop in the Premier League. Since joining Chelsea for €80 million in 2020, the youngster has indeed failed to live up to his expectations. He has scored only 32 goals in 139 appearances.

Havertz has faced criticism this season for failing to make use of his chances in front of goal. His faulty performances have directly reflected on Chelsea’s season, as the Blues have finished in mid-table.

But Real Madrid bosses are confident that Havertz has what it takes to become a success in La Liga. It must be noted that Ancelotti had the chance to monitor the German closely during his time in England.

A host of Premier League players have performed well after coming to La Liga, but it has worked the opposite way as well. Whether or not Havertz can establish himself in the former bracket remains to be seen.
