Chelsea have completed the signing of German midfielder Kai Havertz on a five-year deal.
The 21-year-old moved to Old Trafford from Bayer Leverkusen in a deal valued around €80 million this summer.
He becomes Frank Lampard's sixth signing after the likes of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Thiago Silva, and two others.
The Blues also secured the services of young French defender Malang Sarr but will be sent on loan in a bid to gather topflight experiences away from the London club.

Reacting to his move to Chelsea, Havertz told the club's website: "I am very happy and proud to be here, For me it is a dream come true to play in a big club like Chelsea and I can’t wait to meet all the players and the trainers. Yeah, I am very happy to be here!"
Havertz scored 18 goals and assisted nine others in 45 appearances for his Bundesliga side across competitions last campaign.
His goals scoring ability even as a midfielder must have attracted Lampard to his attention and now they will be working together next season.
The 21-year-old was said to have left Germany's camp for the UEFA Nations League in Stuttgart on Friday morning (September 4) to complete his dream move to Stamford Bridge.
Reports reveal that the Blues have an understanding with Die Werkself to land their player Sarr on loan for the season.
Havertz has spent his entire career at Leverkusen - scoring 41 goals and 36 assists in 150 games in all competitions.
