Kai Havertz says 'you can't go wrong with Bayern' if you want to achieve success as a player in Germany.

The Leverkusen star understands why he is being linked with a move to Bayern as he has seen many other promising players join the Bavarians at a young age.

"They're probably the biggest club in Germany and there are many players that were very successful at a young age that went there. Therefore, I get linked with Bayern, but we'll see what happens," Havertz said in an interview with Marca and went on:

"There are players that want to stay close to their family and others say, 'I want to live in another country'. There's something clear: if you want to be a star in Germany, you can't go wrong with Bayern."

Havertz has also drawn attention from a number of clubs from abroad, and the 20-year-old doesn't want to rule out that he could leave Germany.

"I think I've picked up enough international experience at Leverkusen. I know the rhythm of these international matches and I'm confident that I can go abroad at any moment and play at clubs outside of Germany. For the moment, I want to have a good season. Afterwards, we'll see," Havertz said.

Havertz's contract with Leverkusen runs until 2022.
