New Arsenal signing Kai Havertz penned an emotional farewell message to Chelsea fans after his departure was confirmed.

Arsenal’s newest acquisition, Kai Havertz, expressed his heartfelt farewell to Chelsea fans following the confirmation of his departure. The Gunners officially announced the signing of the talented German forward for a fee of £65 million on Wednesday night, shortly after a video leaked on social media.

Havertz openly acknowledged that this was not the ideal manner in which he wished Chelsea supporters to learn about his exit.

He wrote on Instagram: “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.

“Today, I find myself at a crossroads, where words can’t describe the emotions I’m feeling. It is with a heavy heart that I write this letter, saying goodbye to the club that has become my second home, and to the incredible fans who have supported me throughout this amazing journey.

“Together, we have experienced the highs and lows, the joys and heartaches.

“Today I want to thank each and every Chelsea supporter, member of staff, coaches and my team mates for the last years.

“Joining Chelsea 3 years ago was a big moment in my life and I’m looking back on these years with nothing but pride, gratefulness and loads of sporting success.

“From winning the Champions League in my first season to winning the Super Cup and the Club World Cup and now saying goodbye has been quite a journey that I will never forget.

“Every second of my time at Chelsea I identified with what it means to represent the club on and off the pitch and I hope that everyone remembers me for this. I’m looking back at memories that last a lifetime. The club will be forever in my heart and I made friends for life.

“It was an honour to be part of Chelsea history.”
