Chelsea attacker Kai Havertz has expressed his admiration for Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne , hailing him as a 'very good' player.

 De Bruyne has been in fine form for Pep Guardiola's side this season. He has scored 15 goals and provided 12 assists from 40 appearances across all competitions for the Premier League table-toppers.

The Belgium international has helped Manchester City earn a place at the top of the league table. He could also be key in the Citizens' hunt for the UEFA Champions League this season.

De Bruyne's performances for Manchester City so far have seen him become a strong contender for the 2022 Ballon d'Or. The midfielder is ranked sixth in the Ballon d'Or Power Rankings for the month of April .

Havertz has become the latest in a long line of football personalities to wax lyrical about De Bruyne. The German revealed that he loves to watch the Manchester City star play and admitted that he would like to have his brain. Explaining what a 'perfect Kai Havertz' would look like, he said on Stadium Astro [via HITC ]:

“The brain, I would say, De Bruyne maybe. He is a very good player for me. I love to watch him play. He is very good.”

It is worth noting that De Bruyne played a key role in Manchester City's 4-3 win against Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tie last week. He opened the scoring for the Citizens just two minutes into the game and provided the assist for Gabriel Jesus' goal.

The two sides are scheduled to lock horns at the Santiago Bernabeu in the second leg of the tie on Wednesday. Guardiola and Co will be hoping that De Bruyne is firing on cylinders in Spain.
