Kai Havertz had the perfect response when asked about his £89million price tag after leading Chelsea to Champions League glory against Manchester City on Saturday.

The Blues paid a club-record fee to sign the German from Bayer Leverkusen, and after a rather underwhelming season, the 21-year-old made a place for himself in Chelsea's history books.

When asked about his price tag on BT Sport following the game, Haverz replied: "I don't give a f*ck, we won the Champions League!"

The 21-year-old continued: "I don't know what to say. I really don't know what to say. I waited a long time. Now I want to thank my family, my parents, my grandmother and my girlfriend. I don't know what to say. I've waited 15 years for this moment and now it's here."

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta added: "[Havertz] was so calm. Not only that. He runs like crazy! That's why he deserves this. I came here in 2012 after that Champions League win. I wanted to repeat that Champions League success. It is amazing. My family are here. It is a special, special day."
