He does that, as Havertz admits in a refreshingly honest interview with the "Bild", but not too much. "At some point, the next step has to come for me, but I do not have a big head, when exactly that will be the case.Now Bayer Leverkusen counts first.We still have a lot planned."
Maybe not the "right step"

"
Words they will certainly not like to hear in Munich. Nevertheless, the midfielder could trust the jump to a big club like the record champions: "I have this confidence, yes, but the same applies to other clubs."
