Former Chelsea star Michael Ballack has advised fellow German Kai Havertz to turn down every move this summer and continue his development at Bayer Leverkusen.

Chelsea are among clubs showing interest in the midfielder but Ballack feels time for foreign adventure hasn't reached.

“Players with his quality are in demand everywhere,” Ballack told SportBild and cited by the Daily Express.


"But I think he’s in good hands in Leverkusen. The conditions there are perfect for young top players and their development. Bayer play attractive football and their training facilities are very good.

“Leverkusen also offer a cautious environment, and as a player you can make mistakes without being the focus of criticism. You should appreciate that. Of course a player like Kai Havertz has to play in the Champions League, so it would be important for Leverkusen to qualify for it.”

The 20-year-old Germany International has scored six goals with five assists in 22 Bundesliga games so far this season.
