When Kai Havertz gets a moment to himself, he likes to sit at the piano and play whatever classical composition takes his fancy.
The sumptuous concertos the German wunderkind likes to conduct with a ball at his feet will bring the 20-year-old greater acclaim however.
Universally regarded now as one of football’s brightest young things, Havertz is attracting serious interest from Europe’s biggest clubs. It appears absolutely certain he will leave Bayer Leverkusen once this summer’s transfer window opens.
As Sportsmail revealed on Tuesday, Chelsea are the latest club to join the lengthening queue for Havertz. With another Bundesliga star, Timo Werner, on his way, Chelsea may well return for another raid.
But not without competition from the likes of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Manchester United – the usual suspects when such a gifted footballer becomes available.
It’s scarcely believable now but just six months ago, Havertz was being jeered by sections of the Leverkusen support as a distinctly underwhelming first half of the season came to an end.
But since the Bundesliga’s resumption, Havertz has shown all over again just what a generational talent he is and precisely why there will be a feeding frenzy in the summer market.
With five goals in four matches following a permanent move to a centre forward position, this Harry Potter lookalike has reminded everyone of his magic powers.
